Ever wonder why some people are heroes? Heroes, according to my students, have something special that sets them apart from others in their field.
Heroes are peacekeepers, freedom fighters, earthwatchers, special writers of lyrics. Heroes have special talents and usually have overcome their own life's obstacles. Learn more about
these African-Americans admired by children by selecting a name at right. If you want to add a story of your own, e-mail your story to Lottie
Simms, Miami Lakes Middle School.
