About the Author:

Charles R. Smith Jr. was born and raised in California. While living in Carson, California he attended elementary and junior high in Compton, Califronia before moving to Duarte, California for high school. He currently lives in Poughkeepsie, New York with his wife Gillian and three kids, Sabine, Adrian and Sebastian.

Shane W. Evans is the illustrator of numerous award-winning books for children, including "Black Jack: The Ballad of Jack Johnson", and "Osceola: Memories of a Sharecropper's Daughter", winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. He lives with his wife and daughter in Kansas City, Missouri.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–5—Each of the 28 entries in this excellent work, written to be used during Black History Month, highlights the achievements of an African American man or woman, or the details of a court decision or historical event, the effects of which are still felt today. Vibrant poetry begins many of the selections, followed by further information that provides a quick overview of the subjects' significance. Highlighting individuals from Crispus Attucks to Barack Obama, this presentation offers a rich overview of African American history. The stellar cast of narrators—Dion Graham, William Jackson Harper, Zainab Jah, January LaVoy, Robin Miles, Lizan Mitchell, Jonathan Earl Peck, and Carter Woodson Redwood—use their vocal talents to bring the words to life. Rich, lyrical voices unite to proclaim freedom, rejoice in justice, and impart information, while occasional appropriate background music and sound effects enhance the production. Having each entry on a separate track makes this an easy tool for teachers to use. The material, however, is best appreciated while viewing Shane W. Evans's bold, textured mixed-media illustrations. Ah, but what about leap years? An open-ended 29th day is included, singing of hope for the future. VERDICT This is an exceptional production that merits a place in any library serving children. ["Highly recommended as a reference book, anexample of poetic forms, and a work of art": SLJ 1/15 review of the Roaring Brook book.]—Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary, Federal Way, WA
