Love and respect prove virtuous above all else in Nicole A. Jones' book, My Black History
A kind grandmother relates the lessons yet to be learned from mankind's past travesties
In a world so vivid with color and a society so beautifully diverse, there's an overwhelming amount of impressionable, young minds to educate and inspire.
With insightful text and compelling illustrations on every page, a kind and sensible grandmother sits down with her grandchildren and relates the lessons yet to be learned from mankind's past travesties. In doing so, she also introduces just some of the many revolutionary men and women who've long began the massive overturning of an old-fashioned mentality.
With discrimination still plaguing modern-day civilization, we're reminded of the importance of rising above its critical view in a strenuous effort to leave the world better than when we found it.
Nicole A. Jones' rhythmic and candid approach will have young readers enthralled as well as enlightened for generations to come.

Meet Author- Nicole A. Jones
Ms. Jones started writing as an avenue to relieve herself of the pain of several consecutive losses in her life but over time she had accumulated a collection of writing in the form of poetry, journals and songs.
When asked, what makes her writings so unique, she says, “I am not a distant writer. I walk through the storms of life with my eyes opened. I not only know what fear, pain, and hurt feel like, I also know what they look like. Despite the boisterous winds and rain and dark clouds I’m facing, I write. I write through my agony and my tears because I know that in the end, I will not only have the ability to relate to others but will also have the ability to explain the measures I took to get out of my storm.”
She adds, “I am not a storm chaser. I do not go looking for storms but if I happen to become caught in one, I try to benefit from it.” She concludes, “Personal failure and personal difficulties can be outstanding resources in our lives but it is the way we employ them that determines if we excel forward or remain stagnant.”
Ms. Jones earned Bachelor of Science degree in Public Health from Dillard University and her Master’s in Business in Administration from Stratford University. She is also a member the National Association of Professional Women.
Ms. Jones currently resides in Woodbridge, Virginia with her family and enjoys participating in community outreach activities.
