African American History Book Giveaway

by Rachel Baker on February 4, 2009

John ColtraneAs I am sure you are all aware, February is African-American History Month.  This is the time where we recognize and celebrate generations of African Americans who struggled to achieve full citizenship in America. The first national celebration of these achievements began in 1925 with Negro History Week.  In 1976 President Ford expanded the celebration to include a month.

To help celebrate the achievements of African Americans in this great nation, in cooperation with Hachette, I am giving away two sets of eight books.

This giveaway will close on February 27, 2009, at 11:59pm; and I will announce the two lucky winners who live in either the United States or Canada (sorry, no P.O. Boxes) on February 28.  A contest on Old Musty Books wouldn’t be a complete if I didn’t ask you to tell me something… so, without further ado…

To enter this contest, leave me a comment about which of these 200 notable icons in African American History inspires you the most?  Check out all the categories before you respond.  There may be a few you didn’t realize were as inspiring as they are.

Don’t forget: give me your email address so I can respond to you if you are a winner.

And here is the eight book set that two of you will win:
