Author Bio

SANDRA K. YOCUM is the Founder/President of the Yocum African-American History Association. Since the late 1960s, when she taught second grade students in Watts, the predominately black community in Los Angeles, she became aware that black students knew little about their own history, or how African-Americans for centuries overcame obstacles and achieved success. As she delved into civil rights history she found omissions and revisionism in history texts that prevent students and teachers from knowing the truth about black history. This discovery caused her to compile her extensive research for Black History 1619 to 2019.
