Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Most of the African American surgeons trained during the 1940s in the United States were a least partly educated by Charles Drew. His pioneering work and personal integrity as a doctor and researcher challenged racist practices in the American Medical Association. He achieved success through self-discipline and sacrifice that present-day students rarely see or understand. His focus on career put stress on his marriage and an early end to his life. Marital strife is delicately handled, and shows solitude as an important aspect of goal setting. The career kept Drew apart from his family. On the night of his death he was exhausted from overwork and fell asleep at the wheel. The myths surrounding his death are exposed. It is a factual report of a dedicated life that includes photographs and personal quotes from correspondence. One of the "African American Biographies" series, Drew's story offers a good example of the commitment required to change a world. 2003, Enslow Publishers,
