Now available for the first time in paperback, Black Heroes is a who's who of cultural importance to all Americans. In recognition and celebration of African American achievement over the past 100 years, this landmark book details the lives of 150 individuals who have made a lasting and profound impact on our culture -- from W.E.B. Du Bois to Colin Powell, from Rosa Parks to Maya Angelou, from Muhammad Ali to Tiger Woods, from Romare Bearden to Josephine Baker. Distinguished author and scholar Jessie Carney Smith has created yet another classic guide to extraordinary individuals and their accomplishments that is sure to please readers of any age.Brimming with information and more than 200 photographs, Black Heroes details the stories of men and women who have struggled against the odds and advanced to miraculous heights, in the process inspiring countless others. "If there is no struggle, there is no progress, " wrote Frederick Douglass. "This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand."
