Summary

Based on much material from two previous books (see annotation below), a large and diverse collection of biographies of notable black individuals from all eras, countries and cultures.

Erased. Ignored. Hidden. Lost. Underappreciated. No longer. Delve into the unique, inspiring, and world-changing history of Black people.
From Frederick Douglass to Oprah Winfrey, and the achievements of ancient African kingdoms to those of the US Civil Rights Movement, timelines From Black History: Leaders, Legends, Legacies takes kids on an exceptional journey from prehistory to modern times.
This DK children's book boasts more than 30 visual timelines, which explore the biographies of the famous and the not-so-famous - from royalty to activists, and writers to scientists, and much, much more. Stunning thematic timelines also explain the development of Black history - from the experiences of black people in the US, to the story of postcolonial Africa.
Did you know that the richest person ever to have lived was a West African? Or the technology that made the lightbulb possible was developed by African American inventor, and not Thomas Edison? How about the fact that Ethiopia was the only African country to avoid colonisation, thanks to the leadership of a brave queen?

NOTE : "At least two thirds of content in this book has been published before in the DK books 'Timelines of Everything' 2018 (ISBN 9780241302323) and 'Timelines of Everyone' 2020 (9780241413005). The material has been updated with new stories and images to more fully reflect Black history."
