Oh, to be: Young, Gifted and Black Too

Meet 52 More Black Icons from Past and Present

This book comes out after Black History Month is over for this year but that is no reason not to have this title in your home or school library. Just some of the inspirational people found in these pages are Touissaint Louverture, Thurgood Marshall, Miriam Makeba, Marcus Samuelson, Laverne Cox and Amanda Gorman. Readers will find beautiful illustrations and interesting biographical information on each of the featured people. With 52 entries, one could read one each week, or just dip in and learn about these men and women in any way that appeals.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
