Description

From Colin Powell, the first African American to be appointed U.S. secretary of state in 2000, to former NBA star Patrick Ewing and Grammy Award winner Harry Belafonte, Jamaican Americans have made important contributions to American society. Drawing on personal stories and historical fact, this fresh, full-color book focuses on this dynamic people and assesses their lasting impact. Three Jamaican characteristics - a passion for music, a respect for religion, and a tradition of travel and migration - are interwoven throughout the book to help convey how these immigrants have been able to preserve their culture in the United States.
