African Americans Who Shaped American History Book Excerpt:

The book does not attempt to tell the complete history of all the accomplishments of African American men and women featured in the book. But it is my hope that the book will become a starting point for further study of the contributions and achievements that a lot of African Americans have made in the past that helped shape American history. Many significant events and personalities in the African American's history and life portrayed in the book are respectfully highlighted as they pursued their goals in American society. The social, scientific, artistic, athletic, religious, educational, and economic development of African American characters was researched and carefully studied to examine the stories of African Americans as slaves who later became emancipated that helped shape American history. The basic aim of the book is to promote a better understanding of America's past by developing an increased awareness of the magnitude of the contribution of the African American in some areas of American life and through all periods of American history. Finally, the book is designed to give teachers and students in our educational and religious institutions a broader and more factual statement of the African Americans role in our nation's history so that the reader will realize that African American history is American history.

Mission Possible Synergistic Academics Book Excerpt:

This book gives an answer to the U.S. pre-kindergarten through grade 12 academic crises which are undermining our “American” values, our academic excellence and our U.S. global positioning in the worlds of business, industry, science, technology, and finance. It begins with a chronological examination of the U.S. American education system from 1635 to today, explaining the benefits, limitations, and damages of new and numerous educational trends, fashions, fads, and dogmas that were supposed to have corrected the education system’s deficiencies. It highlights a few of the major critics who exposed the catastrophically declining results, bringing attention to the U.S. student lack of reading, math, and reasoning skills ... thus resulting in millions of children (and adults) being left behind ... lost ... without adequate, life-functioning skills! This has not only put these students individually at risk, but has put our nation at risk ... in global business, science, technology, and financial competition. Synergistic Academics (a curriculum that not only provides individualized, tailored, basic skills curriculum but also weaves together world history with American History, mathematics, language arts, introductions to 5 foreign languages, biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, music appreciation, hands-on art, research and composition, technology, engineering and robotics ... all woven together into one tapestry ... for all students (pre-kindergarten through grade 12). It offers a living-breathing, patriotic curriculum (proven by 35 years of nationally-standardized test results) that not only corrects the U.S. educational deficiencies but provides the tools students need to aspire to American exceptionalism.

Race and US Foreign Policy Book Excerpt:

African-Americans' analysis of, and interest in, foreign affairs represents a rich and dynamic legacy, and this work provides a cutting edge insight into this neglected aspect of US foreign affairs. In addition to extending the parameters of US foreign policy literature to include race and ethnicity, the book documents case-specific analyses of the evolutionary development of the African American foreign affairs network (AAFAN). Whilst the examination of race in regard to the construction of US foreign policy is significant, this book also provides a cross disciplinary approach which utilises historical and political science methods to paint a more realistic appraisal of US foreign policy. Including analysis of original archival evidence, this theoretically informed work seeks to transcend the standard mono-disciplinary approach which overestimates the separation between domestic and foreign affairs. The unique approach of this work will add an important dimension to a newly emerging field and will be of interest to scholars in ethnic and racial studies, American politics, US foreign policy and US history.
