She told the audience about Mr. Johnson’s book, “Succeeding Against All Odds” as well as works “Forced Into Glory, Abraham Lincoln’s White Dream” by Lerone Bennett and “Special Moments in African American History” by Moneta Sleet, Jr. All three of these books are available at the museum while quantities last.
