Summary
  • Duke Ellington was hailed as the "King of the Keys." This is a most fitting tribute to a great man who proudly celebrated the history of African-Americans from slavery to civil rights struggles
  • Told in the voice of a cool cat named Scat, this dramatic story tells how Ella got her sound on the way to a most remarkable and inspiring career
  • In this reflective poetic tribute, the author remembers growing up when many of the great figures in African-American history gathered in her family home to talk and share ideas and even sing
  • This extraordinary union of poetic text by Ntozake Shange and monumental artwork by kadir Nelson captures the movement for civil rights in the United States and honors its most elegant inspiration, Coretta Scott
  • In celebration of Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday in February 2009, we present this story of the unusual friendship between two great American leaders. At a time when racial tensions were high and racial equality was not yet established, Lincoln and Douglass formed a strong bond over shared ideals
  • An interview with Nikki Giovanni, author of Lincoln and Douglass: An American Friendship, illustrated by Bryan Collier and narrated by Danny Glover
  • Henry dreams of a world where his life belongs to him. But when his family is sold, he risks everything for what he knows is right. With the strength and conviction of the best kind of hero, Henry makes a harrowing journey in a wooden crate--and mails himself to freedom!
  • An interview with Ellen Levine, author of Henry's Freedom Box: A True Story of the Underground Railroad, illustrated by Kadir Nelson and narrated by Jerry Dixon
  • Using quotes from some of his beloved speeches, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. comes to life in stunning collage art and vibrant watercolor paintings in this profound and important biography about beliefs and dreams and following one's heart. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his own words, will inspire and affect you, too
