Description
Repeated events have taught us the importance of history lessons. We Did That! introduces readers to the people, places and events previously unknown or misrepresented in the annals of history. Brimming with stories of freedom, courage, determination and resilience, We Did That! permanently ekes out a spot into the American story for those who might otherwise have been forgotten. Incredible individuals like Mumbet, John Berry Meachum, Stagecoach Mary Fields, and Abdul-Rahman Ibrahim Ibn Sor have been left out of traditional American history but lived lives as impactful and important as any now represented therein. History buffs, students of the truth and skeptics alike will find that We Did That! opens the door to a more complete picture of American history. It’s proof positive of the continuous contribution of Black people to the American story.
