#ReadSoulLit Photo Challenge Day 13 “Food” for Thought

Had to go with this amazing book, 100 Amazing Facts About the Negro.  I’ve started reading since Saturday. 100 Amazing Facts About The Negro is the newly published (2017) nonfiction by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., which is based on the first edition from 1957 by Joel Augustus Rogers entitled « A Negro Believe It Or Not ». This book goes African diaspora and African-American History. You’ll find out Did Lincoln really free the slaves? Who were Africa’s first Ambassadors to Europe? or Why did free black people living in the South before the end of the Civil War stay there?
