Read in November, 2011

A beautiful book of painterly portraits of individuals, each representing a time and place in African-American history. This book is obviously a labor of love by the author, and although the stories are fictionalized, the book includes nonfiction text features such as a timeline, bibliography and index. Surely students will want to know more about the many people and events that are introduced here, for example, Cowboys and Indians: Native Americans and Westward Negroes or Black Innovators, such as the inventor of the automatic traffic signal. But more importantly, it is impossible to contemplate the disappearance of the book as a physical object while holding this book in your hands.
