What’s a good way to learn about African-American history facts? Well, historian, filmmaker, and teacher Dr.Henry Louis Gates Jr. has just the thing! 100 Amazing Facts About The Negro, is a book written by Gates that’s filled to the brim with all kinds of facts.

Gates calls the book an “homage” to Joel Augustus Rogers’ 100 Amazing Facts About The Negro With Complete Proof published in 1957.

Since that book Gates set out to update the book in his own version. “Well, what you do, I took his assertions and did a lot of research to see if it were true. I added a lot of new things that he didn’t know.”
