Dirty Little Secrets About Black History, Its Heroes, and Other TroublemakersBook - 1997
"To date, history remains largely white history. Black people, as a race, are virtually non-existent when historical events are described in textbooks, movies and centennial celebrations. Their role in America is most often that of cotton pickers, marchers or rioters. Black History Month narrowly limits contributions of blacks to a familiar list of 10 to 15 individuals when in fact, blacks, though enslaved and powerless, had a profound and indelible influence on the American socio-economic sysem [sic]. Black labor was the engine that drove this nation and civilizations around the world. Slavery and its legacies shaped and coinue [sic] to receal this nation's cultural, moral and ethical hypocrisy. The products of black labor created industrial revolutions in Britain and America. They provoked social tensions that led to the Revolutionary War, Civil War, Reconstruction and a national civil rights movement...the purpose of this book is to unearth and expose some of the 'Dirty Little Secrets' hidden in the darkness of history." -- cover, page 4.
