School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-Hill traces the meteoric rise of this media star through stage and television roles to feature films. In his career, Washington has avoided typecasting; instead, he has exhibited chameleonlike versatility in playing a variety of figures including a doctor (St. Elsewhere), a soldier (Glory, A Soldier's Story, Crimson Tide, Courage Under Fire), a political activist (Cry Freedom, Malcolm X), and a lawyer (The Pelican Brief, Philadelphia), among many others. Stock black-and-white photographs, mostly of the actor in his various roles, appear throughout. This complimentary biography will give young people insight into how Washington has achieved tremendous success in his work and also as a family man and philanthropist.-Janet Woodward, Garfield High School, Seattle, WA (c) Copyright 2010.
