The ABCs of Black Inventors
"Andre Beard made connecting trains easy.
Craig Thompson does it again with this bright and rhyme filled book overflowing with black inventors such as; Elijah McCoy, “The Real McCoy”, Augustus Jackson who revitalized ice cream, Madame CJ Walker who changed black hair care and many more. Craig Thompson moves the reader along with carefully chosen "kid-speak" that educates and stimulates. Put along side the bright and vivacious illustrations by Roger James this book comes alive.
A native of Baltimore and a graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park, Thompson holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science, and a second Bachelor of Arts Degree in Afro-American Studies. He is also a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Law.
