With hundreds of illustrations and a daily calendar of firsts, this chronicle reveals stories of those who overcame adversity to emerge triumphant and celebrates those who have won personal victories against the forces arrayed against them. A vital collection of more than 4,000 entries, this book is proof that the celebration of African American accomplishments is ongoing.
