Abstract:
A rare group of illustrated history magazines devoted to important figures and events in African American history. Published in the 1960s and 1970s, the series is designed to encourage young readers to “develop interest for further study” by employing a “a new approach to history.” The Golden Legacy series also hoped to “implant pride and self-esteem in Negro youth while dispelling myths in others.” Figures and subjects featured in the series include “Joseph Cinque and the Amistad Mutiny,” “The Saga of Harriet Tubman: The Moses of her People,” “The Life of Matthew Henson,” “Black Cowboys” and “Toussaint L’Overture and the Birth of Haiti.”
