“The Fierce 44: Black Americans Who Shook Up the World, a new book for young readers by the staff of The Undefeated, is [for] sale.
It is adapted from an online project that identified 44 pathbreaking African Americans. The number 44 was selected to acknowledge the achievement of Barack Obama, the 44th president of the United States.
Kevin Merida, editor-in-chief of The Undefeated, writes in a preface to the book, “This is not a list of The Greatest African-Americans of All Time or The Most Influential Blacks in History. Or even The Dopest Brothers and Sisters Who Matter Most This Week. It is a list — fervently debated among our staff, chiseled and refined — of 44 blacks who shook up the world or at least their corner of the world.”
