From School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-These informative and interesting titles approach their topics from an African-American perspective. Blues traces the origins of the music and its influence on American society, as well as on jazz and rock 'n' roll. Kitchen discusses the origins and evolution of soul food as part of a shared heritage going back hundreds of years. Many recipes are included. The readable texts make the respective subjects come alive. The artistic photographs and reproductions, in color and in black and white, appear on almost every page and enliven the texts without overwhelming them.-Eunice Weech, M. L.
