Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763631477, Paperback)

"A glorious tribute to the lives of African-American heroes and heroines."
— SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL


An International Reading Association Teachers' Choice

A Cooperative Children's Book Center Choice

A Chicago Public Library Best Book

"Rappaport and Evans reprise the passion and power that informed their 2002 collaboration, shining their spotlight on the progess and struggles of African Americans from 1863 to 1954. Vigorous prose is punctuated by poems, songs, and excerpts from primary sources, all of which illuminate the peculiar experiences of a people freed and still not free."
