PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 23, 2012 - This calendar book is published as a reminder to young and old participants of the Yes We Can grassroots movement sparked by the Barack Obama campaign to stay strong and to move forward, in remembrance of our ancestors.

Using a blend of compelling characters and events, Mr. Brockington covers a wide range of provocative topics of those who fought for freedom, justice and equality which began as early as 1619 with the first slaves up to the 14th Amendment. Generations later, as Americans, we stand ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS, the ones who fought before us, enjoying many social, economic, and political rights. It is through the struggle of our ancestors that we gain our strength. It is through their struggle that we continue to be inspired and through understanding though the war is long, we, as a people, can win. Today, with movements such as Occupy Wall Street, we witness the togetherness of folks from different races, social, economic backgrounds that have joined hands for justice. We move forward, in remembrance of our ancestors. The book was released by Brockington Enterprise and is available through www.brandhiphop.com.

Inspired by the unveiling of the Dr. Martin Luther King monument and also the tenth anniversary of 9/11 memorial in 2011, Brockington recalled tragic and heroic events throughout American history, especially the heinous acts of terror bestowed upon the African American population as well as the acts of courage. With no anniversaries to commemorate these events, he realized that there was a need for a new, fact-driven, historically accurate portrayal of African American history for the public through the ordinary but practical use of a calendar.
