What is Black History? Did you know what blacks were in Cortez’s crew in Mexico, with Pizarro in Peru and Alvarado in Quito…that when Balboa discovered the Pacific Ocean, 30 black people were with him….that when Alarcon and Coronado conquered Mexico, black people were with them too?
Any misunderstandings between blacks and whites in today’s society tend to stem from the misconceptions about blacks that have been allowed to thrive throughout the ages. The only way to help abolish stereotypes is to help present a more complete picture of the black people throughout history. Black History For Beginners covers a rich but often ignored history and chronicles the black struggle from capture and enslavement in Africa through the Civil Rights movement and up to today and the new and different kinds of struggles that black people face today.

Here is a reprint of one of the most popular Beginners books. Covering a rich history often ignored, Denise Dennis chronicles the struggle from capture and enslavement in Africa right up through Civil Rights and the different kind of struggle Blacks face today.About the Author:
Historian, author and descendant of a free African American who died in the historic Battle of Wyoming, Denise Dennis is the president of The Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust, created in 2001 to preserve the 153-acre Dennis Farm in the Endless Mountains, Susquehanna County. The trust is dedicated to developing the farm and land into an educational and cultural site for cultural heritage tourism.
The farm, potentially a site associated with the Underground Railroad, was originally settled by the family of Prince Perkins, a free African American who died in the Battle of Wyoming and who emigrated to northeastern Pennsylvania from Connecticut in 1793 following the American Revolution. Dennis, the great-great-great-great granddaughter of Perkins, is an author of several books.
