Dear Benjamin Banneker (Paperback)

Dear Benjamin Banneker

$ 7.00

Though the fact that Banneker regularly attended meeting for worship is not mentioned, this is a very good short biography of this remarkable free black man: an accomplished astronomer and mathematician and the first African American man to publish an almanac. He also wrote Thomas Jefferson an incredibly eloquent letter (which is excerpted here) speaking against slavery. Ages 6-9.
