CLARA SMALL PUBLISHES THIRD VOLUME OF ACCLAIMED BOOK ON THE HISTORY OF AFRICAN AMERICANS FROM THE DELMARVA PENINSULA

BookDr. Clara Small, Second Vice President of the Pi Gamma Mu Board of Trustees and Professor Emerita at Salisbury University, profiles 65 notable African Americans in the third volume of her series, Compass Points: Profiles and Biographies of African Americans From the Delmarva Peninsula.   The book includes brief biographies of well-known, and not-so-well known, but impactful, African Americans from the region.

From the publisher:

Did you know...
… former President Obama’s Secret Service Agent and a Director of Safety for the NBA resided here?
… the Eastern Shore’s only African American member of the VA House of Delegates during Reconstruction lived here?
… 18 USCT veterans of the Civil War founded the only all-black village in the nation?
… the founder of Kwanzaa hailed from here?
… the first African American VP for Delmarva Power Bay Region calls Delmarva home?
… the first Black female Superintendent in the National Park Service resides here?
… one of the most prolific national seafood companies existed here?

If one would plot a compass on the Delmarva Peninsula and expand it to 60 or 90 degrees, one would cover the locations or sites where the most famous African Americans lived in this country’s history. Names like Harriett Tubman and Frederick Douglass would rise in an instant, but there are many others to discover. In this collection, Dr. Clara Small explores and uncovers an incredible history about 65 African Americans who lived on the Delmarva Peninsula and who made a lasting impact on the people, communities, and cultural landscapes.   

Compass Points Volume 3 is Small's sixth book.  Her other works include Compass Points Volumes 1 and 2 as well as Reality Check: Brief Biographies of African Americans on Delmarva, released in 1998 and Men of Color to Arms! Manumitted Slaves and Free Blacks from the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland Who Served in the Civil War, co-authored with David Briddell and They Wore Blue and Their Hearts Were Loyal: The United States Colored Troops of Dorchester County, Maryland.
