About the Author:

Wade Hudson is the author of many award-winning books for children and young people, including Powerful Words, 200 Years of Extradinary Writings by African Americans, Jamal's Busy Day, Pass It On: African American Poetry for Children and Poetry for the Masters: The Pioneers.

From Booklist:

Gr. 5-8. Here's a book that's better for its breadth of coverage than for its depth. Hudson's vignettes about a wide variety of African Americans in the scientific community introduce a number of distinguished men and women who may not be generally known. Familiar names are here, too: Benjamin Banneker, George Washington Carver, Mae C. Jemison. But few readers will know Halle Tanner Johnson, the first nineteenth-century woman to practice medicine in Alabama, and Andrew Beard, a freed slave who invented the automatic railroad coupler. Perhaps most interesting, however, are contemporary figures such as Bluford Guion Jr., an aerospace engineer; Dr. Clarice Reid, who has devoted her life to helping people with sickle-cell anemia; and Benjamin Carson, one of the top neurosurgeons in the country, who are role models readily identifiable to today's kids. The format is plain; each subject gets one page, highlighted by a photo or drawing. Oddly, it's sometimes the older figures who get photographs, while the more recent subjects are shown in drawings. A useful book to have on hand. Ilene Cooper
