February is Black History Month and to commemorate this 28-day celebration of African American achievement we’re putting our Dorrance Publishing book spotlight on two books in particular.
Heritage Warriors: Descendants of the Buffalo Soldiers by General “Joe” and The Legendary Voice of the Sonic Boom of the South by Dr. Jimmie James, Jr. and Arthur James.
Both of these Dorrance Published-books are memoirs/bios that were written by African American authors and today, we’re giving you a brief synopsis of each book.
To begin, let’s take a look at Heritage Warriors: Descendants of the Buffalo Soldiers.
This 70-page paperback book comes from the life experiences of General “Joe,” an Air Force veteran who served in the United States military from February 1956 to March 1976. Throughout his service, he worked in just about every service line of the Air Force.
Heritage Warriors chronicles both his life in the service and as a civilian. His hope for this book is to show others how hard it is to be an African American male while contending with the racism of the world.
Next, we move on to The Legendary Voice of the Sonic Boom of the South.
This book was written by Dr. Jimmie James, Jr. who retired as Chair of the Department of Music and Professor of Music at Jackson State University as well as Arthur James, an innovative entrepreneur who has degrees in both mathematics from Jackson State University and an MBA from Loyola University.
Both authors joined forces to write this 254-page book that highlights the long-time voice of the Sonic Boom of the South, Jackson State University’s storied marching band.
