Taken from "Angela Davis, American Political Activist" In Paris, Angela met students from Algeria, a country in North Africa, which was then a colony of France. The students told her how Algerians were trying to free themselves from French rule. Angela was fascinated by these stories. It seemed to her that the French treated Algerians the same way the whites at home treated African Americans.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6-These well-organized books introduce historical and contemporary women of varied races and nationalities. Rebels profiles activists Angela Davis, Dolores Ibarruri, Wangari Maathai, Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, Rigoberta Mench#, and Emmeline Pankhurst. Artists contains sketches of Julie Andrews, Frida Kahlo, Natalia Makarova, Georgia O'Keeffe, Madonna, and Buffy Sainte-Marie. Both books are visually pleasing with clear, colorful photographs and sidebars that give facts about each individual. Many of these figures have not previously been covered in biographical materials for children, especially those in Rebels. One shortcoming is that there is not really enough material on any one person for reports. However, both titles are suitable for browsing and for giving children some idea of the enormous variety of accomplishments of women around the world.
