Review: Twenty-eight people and events in black history from 1770 to the present are portrayed through poetry, quotations, and descriptions that play on numbers. Entries range from the famous to the more obscure, including Crispus Attucks, the first man shot in the Boston Massacre, to Madame C. J. Walker, who overcame adversity to become the wealthiest black woman in the country. The book wraps up with a challenge for readers to make history for themselves.
