Sugar Hill's poetic and rhythmic text gives a tour of historical Harlem. This story has a star studded cast of historical figures like Miles Davis, Lena Horne, Thurgood Marshall among others. This story offers insight into the impact that one neighborhood had on the nation. I really loved the illustrations and the short biographical blurbs in this story. It was perfect the perfect read aloud for my lesson the Harlem Renaissance. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0807576506, Hardcover)

Take a walk through Harlem's Sugar Hill and meet all the amazing people who made this neighborhood legendary. With upbeat rhyming, read-aloud text, Sugar Hill celebrates the Harlem neighborhood that successful African Americans first called home during the 1920s. Children raised in Sugar Hill not only looked up to these achievers but also experienced art and culture at home, at church, and in the community. Books, music lessons, and art classes expanded their horizons beyond the narrow limits of segregation. Includes brief biographies of jazz greats Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sonny Rollins, and Miles Davis; artists Aaron Douglas and Faith Ringgold; entertainers Lena Horne and the Nicholas Brothers; writer Zora Neale Hurston; civil rights leader W. E. B. DuBois and lawyer Thurgood Marshall.
