It’s time to add the names Richard Allen, James Forten, and Prince Hall to the list that includes George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams. AMERICA’S BLACK FOUNDERS (in the FOR KIDS series) tells the history of men and women…soldiers, sailors, ministers, poets, merchants, doctors, and other community leaders…who have earned proper recognition as founders of the United States of America.
“A solid resource for teachers and librarians who wish to engage children in this formative period of American history.”
