‘On the Shoulders of Giants’ published

Grambling State graduate Orey Brockington III share the dramatic events and heroes of Black history using a blend of compelling characters in his new book On the Shoulders of Giants.

Brockington’s rich but concise narrative recalls both tragic and heroic events in Black history from the 1600s to the present. The book offers young adults and middle-school students an invaluable lesson about self-love. Brockington’s poignant—but straightforward narrative—relates the stories of the heroes who selflessly fought for freedom, civil rights, and a life of opportunity for their children.

Brockington said his book is intended to help readers apply the lessons of the past to help overcome problems and be inspired and empowered about their own futures. On the Shoulders of Giants serves as an invaluable resource for educators in an educational environment that overwhelmingly glosses over, or ignores, Black history.
