But they have never stepped back or just stayed on the sides while the world continues turning. In their own simple ordinary ways, they have made extraordinary contributions of works that benefitted society until today. In appreciation and recognition of some remarkable Black Louisianians, author Norman R. Smith honors them with the release of his newly published book, Footprints of Black Louisiana. Black men and women are proud of their heritage and they only want a chance to prove their worth to society. The author’s collection unveils a mass of great Black Louisianians and he tells who they are and what they have done to make America a better place. He invites the reader to follow the Footprints of Black Louisiana as he spotlights: Black activist, philanthropists, civic and political leaders, businessmen, educators, religious leaders, musical, visual and literary artists, entertainers, scientists, inventors, medical professionals, and others who have made long lasting contribution to the world. This collection features distinct images of landmarks and significant buildings erected through the efforts of Black Louisianians.
