Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up—Beginning with the oral tradition brought to America by enslaved Africans, this text navigates through the centuries, providing readers with a succinct, but comprehensive, overview of the progression of the African American literary tradition. It pays tribute to those who are well known, but also includes those who are less familiar. What is more exciting is its inclusion of young adult writers such as Virginia Hamilton and Mildred Taylor. Color and black-and-white illustrations and photos appear throughout. This is a book for readers who know little or nothing about the field, but it is also for those who need a brief review.—Carol Jones Collins, Hanover Park High School, East Hanover, NJ
