Welcome to the Culture 4 Freedom Book Club

Three of the major keys to success are being an avid reader, a life-long learner and a critical thinker. It’s has been said if you want to hide the truth about something from the people just put it in a book. We encourage all to seek the truth to expand their knowledge, wisdom & understanding.

As one of our great Ancestors, Dr. John Henrik Clarke stated “Powerful people cannot afford to educate the people that they oppress, because once you are truly educated, you will not ask for power. You will take it."

We will be recommending several books per month. Please join us on this journey to enlightenment, justice and liberation!

1001 Things Everyone Should Know About African American History

Jeffrey C. Stewart

"Distinguished historian and National Book Award winner Jeffrey C. Steward illuminates the famous and the obscure, people like Estevanico, the first African explorer in America, and Sojourner Truth, one of the few Black women to participate in both the abolitionist and women’s rights movements. He tells us how the former slave Peter Salem dispatched the hated British major at the battle of Bunker Hill, and how Colin Powell earned his medals in Vietnam. And he reminds us of the artistic contributions of filmmaker Oscar Micheaux, dancer Katherine Dunham, and actor Ira Aldridge.Here is a fact-filled trip through five hundred years of African American history, divided into six broad sections: Great Migrations; Civil Rights and Politics; Science, Inventions and Medicine; Sports; Military; Culture and Religion. So if you want to know who invented the gas mask or dominated college lacrosse in the mid 1950s, or became the first Black cowboy to write his own autobiography, or even who invented the disc jockey technique of “scratching” you’re sure to find it in 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About African American History."
