Did you know about the 10-year-old who earned $371,000 a year? Or, did you know that Betty Boop was actually based on Esther Jones, not Helen Kane? Also, did you know that the first man to reach the North Pole was African American? See all of those drawings and learn more about these black figures in this book.
I did a portrait a day for Black History Month of figures who were black, contributed or were contributing, to America in some outstanding way. I did them on my way to work, or whenever I was commuting. My peers enjoyed the artwork and learned interesting facts about these amazing black figures who lived throughout history so I decided to share them with the world.
