This is an amazing book about a scholar that changed the world by collecting stories of histories erased maliciously. Arturo Schomburg went on to curate the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, still open and changing lives today. This book is hefty! It is crammed with information about Arturo Schomburg himself, as well as biographies of some individuals that he gathered books about. Schomburg was fascinated with Black stories, gathering tales of “his history” to share with the world.
