A great way to celebrate Black History Month is to acquire for yourself, family and friends the resource history book Black History 1619- 2019: An Illustrated and Documented African-American History that is an in-depth look at the events which shaped African American lives and contributions in the United States of America.

American history books, which are the dominant educational tool that shapes the views of the public, do not include most of the exceptional accomplishments of African Americans. As a result, the public misses some of the greatest inspirational stories ever told when American history books are devoid of or inadequately represent black history.

The book is available in ebook and hardcopy through all national bookstores and on Amazon. It can be purchased directly from the publisher, Paragon House.


 “An ideal curriculum textbook for Black Studies and American History.”
Midwest Book Review

“Our Academy refers to this excellent and objective review of Black History that sheds light on many chapters of American history in clear, objective, and precise language backed up by thorough research and many compelling photos and individual stories. It enables real conversation and constructive thinking about race in this country instead of the propaganda that seeks racial division for economic and political gain. I encourage other schools to use it when developing their American History courses, particularly during Black History month, as it is a wealth of resources for lesson planning.”
―Frank LaGrotteria, D.Min, Headmaster, Bridgeport International Academy
