"Cleveland Shepard III"
I really enjoyed reading this book and learning about the history of the Black Wallstreet in Tulsa, OK. My family recently visited this historic site. This book emphasized African Americans having their own businesses and the support they had for one another as a community. This is an easy read for all children.
As we approach the 100th anniversary of the burning of Black Wall Street, this book serves as an essential tool in educating our children about the critical history and tragedy of the events that occurred there. The illustrations and story are wonderful. A people without knowledge of their history are doomed to repeat it. This is a must-read for every child so that we produce a future a absent of the the mistakes Of the past.
