On the Shoulder of Giants is a mini book highlighting heroes of African American, African, and Indigenous American decent. This audiobook is an extension of my blog page On the Shoulders of Giants; this book and the blog page were designed to create awareness about heroes of the past and present who gave the world hope and freedom. It is important to recognize and understand the contributions of those before you, particularly those of African or Indigenous descent. Our past is significant because of the plight we had to overcome and in some aspects are still overcoming to be considered human beings.

Yes, history on people tht we don't typically hear
I would recommend this audio book ESPECIALLY if you have youth.
This is an inspiring book detailing an inspiring history of Africans throughout the diaspora from South America to North America. He speaks on the history of individuals that are not known by many that is worthy of being known. This is a great discussion tool for youth and elders alike.
And I love the fact that it's an audio book. Instead of listening to the radio for road trips.....we can listen to our history. Much needed.
