t's been said that those who don't learn from history are destined to repeat it. It is that conviction that makes this youthful Christian history of black America a vital resource for educators, parents, and students alike. From the first African slaves to the first black professional athletes, from the revival at Azusa Street to the civil rights movement, from the who's who of historically black denominational leaders to the who's who of popular African American culture, this chronological survey highlights with rich illustrations, famous quotes, and "Phat Facts" the names and events that forged African American experience in the twenty-first century.

AAMBC Book Reviews  Feb 26, 2009
In Profiles in Black: Phat Facts for Teens, have unique themed sections for a Black History book. These themes are: definitions; 411 that highlights on black leaders; facts; fast forwards on an epoch in history, where we have progressed; and landmarks in history. It has detailed, informative, and remarkable stories on past and present African American people. There are also photos, laws written on black's behalf, periods of history (e.g. Civil War, Revolution, Renaissance, Emancipation, etc), musicians, military leaders like Buffalo Soldiers and Tuskegee Airmen, athletes, judges, and other profound degrees, writers and poets, theatre and political leaders.
The most powerful message while reading Profiles in Black: Phat Facts for Teens, came from "The Souls of Black Folk" by W.E.B. DuBois. Another one is from Lott Carey that mirrored the language of Martin Luther King Jr., more than a 100 years later, "to go to a country where I shall be estimated by my merits [skills, talents, work ethics, etc:], not by my complexion." Moreover, we learn about inventors, financial institutions, church ministries, and entrepreneurs, who were the first to create, establish, or founded by Black Americans.
Today, our youth has lost sight on Black History. Some are not taught in our public schools either. Since we have one month, February, for black history and pageants, this book is a resourceful tool to write their research papers and learn more on black heritage. Just like that old saying, "we have to learn our past in order to move forward." Also, if we know our history, we do not have to reciprocate (repeat itself). For example, while I was working for the Obama Campaign, some of the youth who just turned 18 years old, did not understand the value of voting. How leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and civil rights leaders fought for change and the rights to vote?
Our children do not know the importance of our rights, and struggles for the next generation to be better off. We forgot during slavery, we were considered as 3/5 of a person according to the U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 2. Read Article IV, Section 2, where there was no escape from slavery even if you sought freedom elsewhere (away from a slave's state). You will be astounded what you will find out, what you did not know, and other interesting facts. Our teens can relate to and graviate to gospel artists like Kirk Franklin (who desired to reach our youth through his evolutional gospel music sound), urban poetry and spoken word captivated us, and Hip Hop era and Hip Hop culture (such as break-dancers, taggers (those who were writers with a message through their graphic canvas), MCs and B-Boys), where today we have our 50-cent, Lil' Wayne and so forth. Not just teens can read this book, all of us can learn more about Black History.
