From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-These books place their subjects in the context of our country's history. Jones covers Bethune's life, the Civil Rights Movement, the role of women in American society, and educational reform. The history of ragtime is an important part of Scott Joplin's story. March on Washington discusses the Civil Rights Movement and Martin Luther King Jr.'s important role. While all three books will serve as introductions to their subjects, they may leave readers with some unanswered questions. Bethune reads more like a list of accomplishments than a fully developed biography. Scott Joplin has some eye-catching photographs but several are not identified. In March, it's mentioned that the first black labor union was the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters without an explanation, and it jumps from a discussion of the NAACP to CORE in less than 100 words. These informative but dry titles include lots of inviting period photographs and reproductions.

Review:

"Highly readable writing, information not readily available for the intended audience, illustrations and reproductions of paintings from the Library of Congress and other worthy institutions, and a respectful tone make these volumes excellent introductions to these African Americans and their times."
