Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-- More than 80 contemporary and historical black women are profiled in this second volume in the series. Entries range from the well known (Sojourner Truth, Oprah Winfrey, Ella Fitzgerald) to the lesser known (Jane C. Wright, Alice Coachman, Edith Sampson). The half-page sketches provide basic information, and each entry includes a black-and-white photograph and a quotation from the subject or another relevant source. A chronology of important dates in black history and a reading list are also included. The categorical arrangement includes freedom fighters, educators, writers and fine artists, performing artists, athletes, entrepreneurs, lawyers and policymakers, and scientists and healers. A fine purchase for school and public libraries. --Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
