Front and back of bookmark feature 25 world-renowned African-American men and women who made permanent contributions to humanity. Every time students read, they'll view those who distinguished themselves in education, science, civil rights, law, politics and more.
The bookmarks were very durable. However, I feel that the bookmarks need to be updated to include other African Americans especially President Barack Obama.
20 African-American's Who Made a Difference Bookmarks
Anita Roberson from VA, February 18, 2013
These bookmarks were purchased to highlight and remind our congregation of the many significant accomplishments of African-Amercians who were inspired to make a difference or listened to their dreams to make a tangible difference in America. Many youth were amazed (because sadly this history is often not shared in schools) as we shared their stories about many folks on those bookmarks and told about their impact that one person can make and how the ripple- effect is carried forth into future generations. Our church members really loved them!
