Book Jacket:

Drawn from the lives of key Christian from the past and present, Heroes in Black History is a beautifully illustrated treasury of forty-two exciting and educational readings designed to help foster Christian character qualities in families with elementary-age children. This inspiring collection, highlighting African-American Christians, presents a short biography and three true stories for each hero, including:

  • Harriet Tubman
  • George Washington Carver
  • William Seymour
  • Thomas A. Dorsey
  • Mary McLeod Bethune
  • Martin Luther King Jr.

Whether read together at family devotions or alone, Heroes in Black History is an ideal way to acquaint children ages six to twelve with historically important Christians while imparting valuable lessons.
