Book Synopsis
America has 2 histories: American history and Black history. American history is "of the people, by the people and for the people." Black history is the struggle for equal citizenship, full person-hood, within the framework of The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution.

Malcolm X stated, "History is a people's memory..." As science is discovering, through the study of epigenetics, summed up in a quote by author, Isaiah Washington,"DNA is memory!" History has made us who we are today. And we in turn are creating the present for future generations. If we don't access our memories, we won't know who we are. The cost of not honoring one's ancestors is not honoring oneself.

In over 110 poems, A Black History Journey: Poems on The African-American Experience, honors the unique lineage of black Americans; a heritage that contributed to the great wealth and innovation of a country that, for centuries, denied them equal rights.

The book includes poems on Africa, African godesses, American Slavery, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, Mary Mcleod-Bethune, Fannie Lou Hamer, Segregation, and just general black American history facts and figures.

It is a poetic journey of several generations, from the African past, to present-day America.
