it was amazing

Despite looking white at a time when it was difficult to be African American, Effa never denied her heritage. She both stood with and for her race. When protests were needed, Effa helped make them happen. When letters were needed, she wrote dozens over many years to get recognition for her players. While this picture book biography is hardly complete (picture book biographies are by nature incomplete) it does give the reader a glimpse of a woman passionate about a sport and its players. Tate's gorgeous illustrations provide a nice compliment to the crisp, narrative text, perfect for reading aloud. Recommended.
