February of 2018 marks the 32nd anniversary of Black History Month and in honor of this legacy, Mascot Books announces the release of Hey Tuskegee! the first children’s book about historic Tuskegee University! Author, Robert E. Constant is a 1998 graduate and the third person in his family to receive a degree from the prestigious university. Linda Pace Samuel, a Tuskegee Alumna and author of “Return of the African Diaspora”, says, “Robert did a fantastic job of capturing the ‘Skegee spirit as only an Alum can, and in a way that is sure to appeal to elementary and middle school students. He also quietly delivers a strong message about the responsibility for financially supporting alma mater, and the importance of alumni remaining actively involved with the school.”
In this story, join Robbie and Saniyah on a trip to their parents’ alma mater, Tuskegee University, for Homecoming! Relive the magic of possibility and the immersive pageantry of school spirit as the siblings celebrate the accomplishments of iconic African-American alumni and historical figures, including the university’s founder Booker T. Washington, who helped make Tuskegee University the incredible institution it is today. From the Marching Crimson Pipers band leading a crowd of 30,000 in singing the university’s signature song to the comradery of the Black Greek sororities and fraternities, vivid illustrations from James Zeger bring the celebratory campus event to life. Written equally with nostalgic sentiment and educational insight, Hey Tuskegee! inspires past, present, and future students to be the best they can be. Don’t miss out on this instant classic!
