"Lest We Forget: The Passage From Africa Into The Twenty-First Century" by Velma Maia Thomas

An elegant bind-up of three collectible books by distinguished historian, Velma Maia Thomas, curator of the nationally acclaimed Black Holocaust Exhibit in Atlanta, Georgia:
  • Lest We Forget 
  • Freedom’s Children
  • We Shall Not Be Moved
It offers an intimate look at black history in America through the lens of a passionate historian committed to preserving these important accounts, along with related memorabilia.
  • More than 200 photographs and images dedicated to preserving and honoring Black history.
  • Twelve pieces of interactive memorabilia with authentic replicas from another time and place.
Based on materials from the nationally acclaimed Black Holocaust Exhibit, Lest We Forget documents the plight of an estimated 100 million Africans, from their rich pre-slavery culture to their enslavement in a foreign land. This book chronicles the unyielding strength of a people who refused to be broken.

Taste the sweetness of freedom and the bitter struggle for equality through the documents that impacted the lives of an entire race. Freedom’s Children brings to life the heart-wrenching and inspiring tale of freedmen and freed women during Reconstruction and into the twentieth century.

Throughout the twentieth century, African Americans would trouble the waters of America—agitating, challenging, and defying the status quo. We Shall Not Be Moved chronicles the struggles and triumphs of African Americans leading up to and during the Civil Rights Movement.
