"What makes this book hands-on and informative are the anecdotes of our country's black founders that Nancy Sanders brings to life. History can be dry and boring and students need to get excited about our heroes just as writers do. It's clear Nancy Sanders has a natural gift for writing about our nation founders that will engage any class.
