From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-These overviews cover the history of slavery in the New World until the American Civil War and the history of empires that existed in Africa before Europeans arrived. The first half of Slavery tells how the practice evolved from ancient times to the period of massive slavery in the cotton-gin era of 19th-century America. The second half of the book introduces nine famous black men, among them Crispus Attucks and Benjamin Banneker. Kingdoms treats developed cultures of Mali, Ghana, Yoruba, and Zanj. The books may be aimed at reluctant readers, but they're not well organized and the writing style is pedestrian. The artwork is haphazardly matched to the text, and sometimes key points are not illustrated. The captions are meager, and the maps do not provide adequate information to support the texts. Better choices for this age group are James Haskins and Kathleen Benson's Bound for America (2001) and African Beginnings (1998, both Lothrop), Meg Greene's Slave Young, Slave Long (Lerner, 2001), or any good encyclopedia article or online database.
