From Dr. Wesley, Former Executive Director of the Association for the Study of Afro-American Life and History and President of Central State College: “We have been aware of the visual presentation of history in its immediate values for learning both by children and adults. Your presentations in illustrated history form in color have been tried out by us on several children, and they have read and looked with deep interest, and have said that they had enjoyed this type of reading. These issues should be placed in the hands of all children, black and white, and they will learn the facts with less effort ….”
I read Golden Legacy at a neighbor’s house and was very impressed by it. I found it very enlightening to me as an adult, and I know the magazines will be educational and enlightening to my younger sisters and brothers as well.

“The illustrated magazine, Golden Legacy, certainly lives up to its name, telling us things of the storied past that are well worth knowing. Each volume catches the spirit of the times and the personality of the participants. As one turns the pages the past seems to come alive, particularly those aspects of it which up to now have generally escaped our attention.”
One of our Golden Legacy readers, Amma Ghartey-Tagoe, a high school junior from Manhattan, Kansas won the 1997 National History Day Grand Prize Award of a $60,000. College scholarship was inspired by our Golden Legacy title, Volume 10, Joseph Cinque and the Amistad Mutiny, that was given to her by her mother. Her teacher, Mickey Bogart, won the History Channel’s $5,000 Mentors Award! Read some of what this student wrote in the National History Day NEWS, a publication that is dedicated to promoting the Study of History in Schools, issued the Summer of 1996.
Darryl E. Roberts, a 23 year old young man from Brooklyn, N.Y. was inspired by our title on Matthew Henson and his historic expedition with Commander Peary to the North Pole! As a result, Darryl Roberts was motivated to join an international delegation, ICEWALK that was timed to commemorate and celebrate the 80th anniversary of that historic landmark in polar exploration!!!
ICEWALK, the first truly international expedition to the North Pole, embarked in December Of 1988 from the northernmost point of Canada, Cape Columbia, on a 65 day, 489 mile trek on foot to the North Pole to carry out scientific studies to determine levels of various pollutants in the Artic atmosphere!!!
