In the fascinating and entertaining book, Curtis Claytor invites you to test and increase your knowledge of black history and celebrate the achievements of not only the well-known African- Americans but also the lesser known.
Claytor conducted years of research to compile more than 2,000 multiple choice questions and answers in four categories: History; Music; Sports; Television, Arts & Literature. For example, most people learned about Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman, and George Washington Carver. But who was the woman who refused to sit in the Jim Crow section of a train in 1883 or the name of the Black man who invented the gas mask and the three-signal stoplight? Not only will one learn about inventors and the heroes of the black struggle; one will learn about the horrific racial violence that is seldom mentioned in history books.
How about some other fun facts? Do you know about the race riot that resulted in the murder of over 200 blacks and the destruction of more than eleven hundred black businesses and homes? What about the race riot that began when a black youth who ventured into the "white section" of a lake drowned after angry whites pelted him with rocks?
Black trivia enthusiasts will learn the answers to a variety of questions like who scored 101 points in the first half of a high school basketball game, Fred Sanford's middle initial, and when the freaks come out according to the Whodini song.
Here's what reviewers are saying:
