From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–10—This volume covers 41 distinguished African-American actors, artists, authors, dancers, musicians, and entrepreneurs. (Volume 1 [2007] profiled individuals prominent in the areas of civil rights, politics, and social leadership; and scientists, inventors, and athletes). Each entry opens with an average-quality black-and-white photograph of the subject, and is followed by birth and (where applicable) death dates and information on early life, education, career, challenges, family, and legacy. Articles conclude with a listing of three to four relevant Web sites. The men and women cover a wide temporal range—from Phillis Wheatley, born around 1753, to Savion Glover, born in 1973. A good deal of information is presented over the course of five to nine pages, yet the profiles are easy to read and comprehend, due to simple, lively language, large font size, and generous line spacing and white space. An added bonus is the inclusion of 12 "Brief Biographies"—short entries on important people in African-American history who do not receive a full article. A subject index includes names, occupations, and other keywords. While most of the individuals in this volume are also profiled in African American Biographies (Grolier, 2006), this would make a good general purchase for libraries needing information on the topic.—Mary N.
