This is a lyrical portrait of a man that most of us know little about. We learn through poems of his background as the son of slaves, being raised by white slave-owners, and going out on his own at a very early age in search of an education. We also see the predjudice he faced, but not in an upsetting or judgemental way. We learn of his deep Christian faith, his many contributions to science, but most of all the dignity of the man and his desire to help his race. This book is appropriate even for children as young as 8, with some explanations. I believe that older children will love the flow of language as well.
