In this week's Spotlight we feature "CultureSeek" by LaTonya Branham
CultureSeek is filled with over 1,200 black history facts, famous quotes, photos, discussion questions, and word search puzzles that accompany each chapter - creating an engaging and re-enforcing reading experience. Understanding that black culture has roots in African and American history, CultureSeek draws the connection. It explores the contributions and successes of African American people. Topics include: Countries in Africa, Kings and Queens, The Underground Railroad, Science Giants, Musical Legends, Divine Guidance, Military Life, Inventors, Great Moments in Sports, Educators and Scholars, and much more!
