I love this book. Concise yet detailed and informative about each individual. As an African American Studies graduate and advocate, I leave this book propped up in my school counseling office as a resource for kids to see just what ingenuity, passion, and perseverance can do. With the hopes of instilling in them that they too can be a legend. I love that it has a legend outline in the background so that they can create their own legend. It reads for them to create a legend not pictured in the book, as there are so many that not All could possibly be included; but I use it for students to depict themselves as legends and how they want their story to read to others.
