This is a very impressive effort text, photos, drawings, maps and primary source documents all come together to create a book that is compelling and interesting Because of the many visuals, it s good for browsing, but the well researched text is excellent forin depth study as well I learned a ton from reading this one Would have loved to purchase this for my library but it is too old for my under tensa necessary book, well done and fascinating, and I would love to see younger spin offs biographies and history for younger readers. What a book This book gives us detail of so many influential African American from early slavery to today This book highlights the life, struggle and success of people such as President Barrack Obama, MLK, Harriet Tubman, and etc This book can be used for grade 4 8. A Fascinating text about black Americans Just a little to deep for me I really enjoyed the addition of pictures that were carefully placed to Id in undstanding.
