Leaders Like Us - School Library Journal - April 2022

Posted by Rourke Educational Media Admin on

Four attractively illustrated volumes explore the careers of extraordinary, but little-known Black leaders. Cathy Hughes founded a chain of radio stations aimed at Black audiences, Frederick O'Neal was instrumental in theater during the Harlem Renaissance, Georgia Gilmore provided food and money for the Montgomery Boycott, and Ottawa Gurley was responsible for a thriving Black community in Tulsa, OK. The primary focus of each book is the accomplishment of each subject in their respective fields; those seeking statistical information will need to consult the timelines in the back. Nonetheless, the colorful drawings and straightforward texts do an excellent job introducing young readers to these admirable leaders who are omitted from the textbooks. Readers will be encouraged to learn more about these extraordinary people. VERDICT These nicely illustrated titles about lesser-known people who are important leaders in different fields should attract browsers and report writers alike. Recommended.
