JUST IN TIME TO CELEBRATE DR. KING'S LEGACY, PICK UP THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND LITERARY BRIDGE BETWEEN BLACK HISTORY MAKERS AND TOMORROW'S TRAILBLAZERS.
Just in time for February, Because of Them, We Can celebrates and empowers the next generation of youth by reimagining Black history from a contemporary perspective. Chockfull of exquisitely staged photos and historical descriptions, the $40 hardcover book weighs in at six pounds and 365 pages of self-esteem boosting images of children posing as African-American innovators and trailblazers - both past and present. Launched as a campaign for Black History Month, the author soon discovered there were too many achievers to highlight in just 28 days. She resigned from her job to continue the campaign in March of 2013, and the response has been overwhelming, with thousands sharing the mission behind the movement, including Janelle Monae, Common, Kerry Washington, Spike Lee and Harry Belafonte. Give the invaluable gift of perspective and purpose to a deserving young person, and help connect the dots between past, present and future.
