Corporal Freddie Stowers: A Memoir, Familial Past & Present by Tonnie Stowers Jackson

Read the enthralling story of efforts to restore a felled marker erected in honor of Corporal Stowers (the 1st African American to be awarded the Medal of Honor for WWI). Written by one of last surviving nieces of Corporal Stowers, this story meets traditional measures of prejudice with the dedication of one family and community to overcome them. Tonnie Stowers Jackson, also known as “The Senior Word Artist,” recounts the events from Cpl. Stowers’ past to the present that make the collaboration of his family and community members an Inspiring Story. View images from the Familial Archives of the Stowers Family and read information that may be missing from usual stories about Stowers, from the perspective of relatives. A portion of the proceeds (10%) is donated to LSN KIDS, our sister youth non-profit for cultivating cultural intelligence in K-12 students since 2007. Purchase here @ Barnes & Nobles.
