    A Betrayal of Henson's Legacy

    am loathe to criticize this book, first because Matthew Henson deserved very much more recognition than he received during his life, and second because Bradley Robinson took the initiative to do something about it and wrote 'Dark Companion' as a result. Bradley Robinson must be congratulated for trying to bring positive attention to Henson's life-for trying to right historical wrongs-but 'Dark Companion' is written at a sixth-grade reading level and is so full of historical inaccuracies that the Matthew Henson who emerges is little more than a fictional character a la Mark Twain. Teachers should not even consider using this book in the classroom less their students glom onto one of the historical non-truths then perpetuate errors about Henson's life. However, the book does have many maps and photographs that teachers will find useful in preparing lessons about arctic exploration and the African-American experience in America. Another bad aspect of the book is that it is only available from Bradley Robinson's son, Verne, an internet predator who controls Matthew Henson's life like his own private duchy. The website Robinson has set up gives all the appearances of representing a not-for-profit organization dedicated to education and research, but is instead a money-making scheme. Children who have written to the site looking for information for school projects have had their requests published on a special page where Verne Robinson humiliates them for daring to request information. So teachers, do not use the book in your classrooms, and to protect your students, do not let them email the website.
