Obsahy: In seldom-celebrated stories from African-American history, there is a rich trove of daily inspiration for those who seek the strength and courage to shape their future. This is the purpose of Glory Days: 365 Inspired Moments in African-American History. Award-winning author Janus Adams provides a vibrant montage of fascinating and thought-provoking profiles that deal with the innovative spirit that has insured survival against great obstacles. What is a Glory Day to Adams? It is history with a purpose and much more meaningful than who was born on a certain date. In her extensive research, Adams weighed each historical event by a number of criteria to determine its relevancy to our contemporary lives. Assessing each event, she asked the question: Does it leave us with a lesson that empowers, encourages, entertains, solves problems, draws strength from legacy and tradition or simply lifts our hopes and spirits? Accessible in format and diverse in content enough to satisfy a wide range of interests, Glory Days explores African-American heritage across three continents and thirty-five hundred years. In one month alone --
June, for example --
Adams' Glory Days offer revelations range form Adventure, Art, Celebration, Dance, Ethics, Humor and Labor to Law, Literature, Medicine, Military, Religion and more.
Odpovědnost: Janus Adams.

Anotace:

With 450 years of triumph against terrible odds and a rich heritage born of civilizations thousands of years old, here is African-American history as it is rarely seen: through the lens of its victories. In 365 thought-provoking daily entries, Glory Days takes the life and breadth of African-American history to entertain and enlighten, inform and inspire. For personal enjoyment and for reference, for parents and for educators, this is history that reaches out across a world of experience and ethnicity to inspire further inquiry, from the arrival of African explorer Estavanico in 1539 to the rise of Myrlie Evers as head of the NAACP in 1995; from the reign of the first Egyptian queen, Hatsepshut, in 1500 B.C. to the 1992 election of Nelson Mandela as president of South Africa.
