Product Description:

Each volume in this series tells the life story of a famous biracial American achiever- entertainer, athlete, politician, or historical figure.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4–8—These books chronicle the achievements of biracial Americans within the context of their multiracial identity and its influence on their approaches to life. The books include interesting facts, personal stories, and direct quotes, as well as black-and-white and color photographs. Beyoncé Knowles's parents, who are of African-American and Creole descent, grew up during segregation. Readers will learn that she credits their experiences with giving her the education and strong work ethic needed to survive in a world that can still be difficult for a person of color. Halle Berry discusses how the actress felt the sting of racism when she was frequently called a "zebra" and "Oreo" while growing up. Washington describes how the man's determination to succeed despite his birth as a slave and the low expectations that white society had for him make his accomplishments even more impressive. The differences among these subjects, including their times, occupations, and goals, are vast. However, the authors' focus on their strikingly similar experiences adds insight and clarity to their stories.—Margaret Auguste, Franklin Middle School, Somerset, NJ
