School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-A revision of a 1989 title (Children's) with 36 new people added. It profiles more than 100 African-American achievers, including writers, artists, musicians, athletes, activists, politicians, and others who have made headlines. It also includes descriptions of important periods in African-American history, including the Harlem Renaissance, Reconstruction, the Great Northern Migration, and the civil rights movement. Arranged chronologically, the book is well organized and well written, and presents each life simply and clearly. Each sketch includes a black-and-white photograph or drawing of the subject. Students looking for basic biographical information on a wide variety of African Americans would do well to consult this volume.-Carol Jones Collins, Columbia High School, Maplewood, NJ (c) Copyright 2010.
