This book is a beautifully produced piece of not only Black History, but American History! I love how the author features some of the African American heroes who receive less attention in scholarly works. The first 35 legends each have a two-page spread; the profile of the individual along with a familiar yet detailed illustration. While Harrison's figures have a similar look, she adds unique details that distinguish them from each other. Additionally, the background images add the perfect touch to bringing the story to life. This book is now a mainstay on my coffee table, and I highly recommend it for ALL children and adults who may be unfamiliar with the historical contributions of these phenomenal men! Children in second grade and younger will likely need assistance from adult readers.
