Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6-8-A good introduction to the history of the civil rights movement. In a clear, objective style, Taylor covers the early life, education, and accomplishments of seven black leaders, emphasizing the various social movements each spearheaded. The author also includes peripheral information about other influential players in the battle for equality. The chapter on Malcolm X, for example, has brief introductions to Marcus Garvey, Elijah Muhammed, John F. Kennedy, and the Ku Klux Klan. While all of this is helpful, it could prove confusing to less competent readers. The last section contains short bios of other notable figures-Mary McCleod Bethune, Shirley Chisholm, Jesse Jackson, Carol Moseley Braun, and Clarence Thomas. Black-and-white photographs appear throughout. This title will be useful for reports; it has a lengthy index and an excellent chronology of important events in African American history.Phyllis Graves, Creekwood Middle School, Kingwood, TX
