Summary "Highly Recommended. This effort by two educators, Howard Shelf II and Phil Garcia, commemorates black history and refocuses the positives in the rap genre." -National Media Review Howard Shelf II and Phil Garcia are two talented educators and musicians who combine their talents to offer viewers an uplifting introduction to famous African Americans. Performed to the contemporary beat of rap music, this lively animated program identifies important historical information about each important person, then, as a challenging review, two visual quizzes follow up the rap. The first quiz offers 3 questions about each famous African American identified in the rap before the person is identified; these include: Frederick Douglass; Kareem Abdul Jabbar; Hank Aaron; Muhammad Ali; Michael Jordan; George Washington Carver; Benjamin Banneker; Phillis Wheatley; Martin Luther King Jr.; Louis Armstrong; Jesse Owens; Harriet Tubman. The second quiz shows an animated caricature of famous, contemporary African Americans before identifying that person; these include: Oprah Winfrey; Bill Cosby; Barbara Jordan; Sammy Davis Jr.; Diana Ross; Julius Erving (Dr. "J"); Rev. Jesse Jackson; Hammer. Collectively, the rap and quizzes provide a deeper appreciation of the many contributions African Americans have made throughout America's history.
