Description: This is a stunningly beautiful book consisting of portraits-in pictures and words-of twenty outstanding African-Americans. The individuals range from historical to contemporary figures, such as the dancer Judith Jamison, and represent diverse fields of endeavor, from the law (Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall) to athletics, science, and more. For each individual, there is a three-page biography by the noted author Tonya Bolden and a striking black-and-white portrait that captures not only the subject's likeness but is a work of art in itself. A book to inspire, to teach, or to display, with its large trim size and striking design, it is as handsome as it is important. (64 pgs) Ages 9-12

Ashay says, "This book is an excellent value.  Don't be fooled it is not just about Martin Luther King.  I especially like the images and the format.  I think young people will want to pick it up and read.  A must have for the classroom or library."
