From Booklist:

How can one book celebrate the achievements of a group as creative, vibrant, diverse, and successful as the African American community? By making both obvious and unexpected choices when selecting people to honor, and by hoping that these noteworthy individuals will remind readers of still other remarkable men and women, past and present. The editors, Collins, an African American business and community leader, and Cohen, the director of the Day in the Life series of photography books, have embraced the African American experience from a historical perspective, drawing on such collections as that of the Schomburg Center of the New York Public Library for archival photographs. For contemporary portraits, they have commissioned a fleet of top photojournalists. The striking photographs and poignant commentary are organized into chapters focusing on various endeavors, including community service, education, religion, law, science, business, medicine, sports, and the arts. Whether the photographs pay homage to celebrities or "everyday heroes," the message of pride is the same. An excellent book for Black History Month displays. Donna Seaman
