Nationwide -- Ben Wilson's Black Chronicle Book I 1778-1956, a Black history publication whose time has come, will be re-issued for the year long 400 year celebration of African-American history beginning in January of 2019. HR1242 a bill signed into law in 2018 honoring this celebration, will also honor the many contributions made by African-Americans to the building of the USA, despite Chattel Slavery, Jim Crow and 2nd class citizenship.

Mr. Wilson compiled this classic work from a series of newsletters by Henry Hampton, producer of Eyes on the Prize. Wilson's book, written in newspaper format is designed to facilitate learning, understanding and appreciation of Black history.

A Powerful Story

Black History starts with humanity's birth, but begins in the English Colony of Virginia / U.S. with the arrival of the first slave ship from West Africa in 1619. These Africans and their posterity would later lose their complete freedom in what may be considered the worst crime ever against humanity, chattel slavery.
