Praise

“Conversational. . . Delicately textured mixed-media illustrations. . . offer spare, stylized images. . . ” —Publishers Weekly

“Exemplary. . . This inspiring picture book combines a rich but focused text with clear, expressive mixed-media illustrations. It sheds light on an important, inspiring, but little-known subject, and the supplemental back matter gives weight to the exceedingly important takeaways that history must include all people, and that anyone can change history.” —Shelf Awareness

“Thorough back matter. . . A charmingly illustrated picture book biography for elementary schoolers.” —School Library Journal

“Young readers will be caught up in his story. . . . Quotes are seamlessly woven into the narrative, and a time line, list of sources, and bibliography add research appeal. Of special note are the illustrations, which include more than 40 portraits of black leaders. . . Their images and one-line biographies will pique further interest, making this a valuable resource for school and public libraries.” —Booklist

“Hopkinson skillfully shapes Carter’s childhood, family history and formative experiences into a cohesive story.. . . the inclusion of notable figures from black history reinforces the theme (a key is in the backmatter). An important and inspiring tale well told.” —Kirkus Reviews
