Beautifully illustrated account of African-American history.

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this in-depth picture book brings up the important topics of slavery, Jim Crow laws, gender and racial inequality, and economic disadvantage throughout the history of America, with a keen focus on African-American history. Children will better understand the economic benefits as well as the harsh realities of slavery and see the evolution of America's relationship with its African-American citizens. This will touch off questions and discussion on many of the topics still relevant today for many segments of the population. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Balzer + Bray)
