Smith, Charles R., jr. 28 days : moments in Black history that changed the world. Illus. Shane W. Evans. Roaring Brook Press, 2015. unp. $18.99. ISBN:978-1-59643-820-0. Gr. 3+. P7 Q8
The author has chosen 28 individuals, African Americans, and dates through time that helped to shape America’s history. Some of the people I knew about and others I discovered and I want to research more. The illustrations are brightly colored mixed medium collages of oil and digital techniques. The information is clear and correct but it is a starting point from which students will have to go to other resources for more in-depth research.
