Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2-4. These titles are revised editions of volumes from the ongoing Great African Americans series published 10 years ago. In both volumes, the visuals and formats have been much improved. Numerous black-and-white photos now replace the marginal ink drawings in the older volumes, and the layouts are much more inviting. New back matter includes time lines, revised reading lists, and recommended Web sites. The unexceptional text remains largely unchanged from the originals, but these titles offer solid, straightforward biographies of legends whose stories are not often told for such a young audience. --Gillian Engberg"
