From African to African American:

Word Searches That Trace Our Transformation

A Mother for Celeste

   Inspired by the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC, the search words in this book are thought provoking. They trace the unparalleled and centuries-long transformation undertaken by Africans brought to America: from captivity to present day African-America.

   The puzzles remind us of our proud heritage and they are a fun way to help keep our history alive. The good, the bad, and the ugly are represented in the searches – many of the people, places and things that have helped shape our culture and continue to influence who we are today.

   These word searches are a challenging and engaging way to reminiscence about our past. They can also build an easy bridge to share our history with the generations that follow us, when given as stocking stuffers to young children in your family or to entertain them when they come for a visit.


   Who knows? You just might learn something new!
