Book Description:

Using simplified language, “Marcus Teaches Us” is an engaging way to introduce children 6-9 yrs to Marcus Garvey the greatest black philosopher of the 20th Century.
Marcus Garvey wanted to unite all Black people under the eyes of God. Born in Jamaica and traveling to England, Europe and the USA, across the Caribbean and South America, he spread his powerful message of One God, One Aim, One Destiny to people everywhere. And now, by studying his wise teachings, we can solve the problems we face today.

This is a book which introduces Garvey’s philosophy to children. It tells us how Garvey went from being the son of a printer in the countryside of Jamaica to becoming one of the most influential black leaders in the world. This children’s book of Marcus Garvey shows us

  • How in 17 short years the UNIA was 6 million people strong and influencing the civil rights movement of the USA and Independence struggles of Africa
  • That kids must have pride in themselves together with respect and love for others
  • That Black people must become self-reliant entrepreneurs and economic leaders

The book is written for children between 6 and 9 years. There are many books for adults. But the children are our future. It is beautifully illustrated and written in language children will understand. The many activities help to remind children of other great Black heroes, heroines and influencers. To have their own book is a must for kids of this age as it encourages the sense of ownership and acts as a reference until they can read at a higher level.

Written for kids, “Marcus Teaches Us” that “You too can impact Black History”.

Eleanor Wint and Annu Yah Khadi Stewart (Author)
Dr Wint feels that being a grandmother and getting involved in preschool activities has taught her a great deal and makes it easier to relate to the problems parents presently experience. For her, writing for parents and caregivers fills a space as children are faced with so many new challenges on a daily basis. Parents and caregivers at the same time have to develop routines that in some cases seem just plain impossible. Nevertheless there are many parents out there who just need guidance and reassurance and that is something Dr Wint is able to do admirably. Her books are written to reach all parents and caregivers from all walks of life and cultures. She has been using the book with new parents and is intent on teaching how children can build their love of self and respect for Christian ways while parents and early childhood educators learn the keys to building children’s self confidence, self-esteem and respect for their cultural heritage. Teaching about parenting, “I Like Me” is her first book teaching the SHINE technique. Her book “Marcus Teaches Us” is unique in that it is the only book published for children on the teachings of the great philosopher Marcus Garvey. The book on “Bob Marley” is an historic compilation of speakers at the first Symposium held from the historic Bob Marley Museum at the University of the West Indies.
