When John Brown came to Harpers Ferry in 1859, organizing a school for enslaved African Americans was illegal. Eight years later, after a bloody Civil War, Storer College did just that—and more. To honor the 150th anniversary of the school’s founding, Harpers Ferry Park Association, in partnership with Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, invited park rangers, professors, journalists, and scholars to tell the stories of the teachers, students, and reformers who strove to manifest a new world on the “hill of hope.” This collection reveals tales of courage and conviction, success and defeat, controversy and, above all, hope. Paperback, 176 pages.

Frank Keating takes you on an ultimate tour of Abraham Lincoln's life from boyhood to presidency in this biography, which includes stunning paintings by award-winning artist Mike Wimmer that bring the sixteenth President of the United States to vivid life.

To say Abraham Lincoln came from humble beginnings is an understatement. He was born in a Kentucky log cabin with a packed-dirt floor, rough slab roof, and leather-hinged door. He went barefoot for most of the year and wasn't expected to amount to much. But reading was everything to him and his free time was consumed by books. Abraham Lincoln read furiously, studied law, and knew that hard work was his only path to making a change in the world. When he ran for the presidency, he stood for unity--one people and one land. He brought freedom to all citizens, ended slavery, and made the country whole again.

This visual tour de force is based on historical documents and chronicles Honest Abe's life from boyhood to his extraordinary leadership position as the sixteenth President of the United States of America.

African American Education

African American Education

$8.95
More Info
Today all children are required to attend school, but there was a time when all Americans did not enjoy the right to an education and the chance to improve their situation in life. In the nineteenth century, it was against the law in some areas of the United States to teach African Americans. The laws were rooted in the slave system of the South. In this book, we trace the history of African American education before and after the Civil War, from secret schools to well-established universities.
