Sweet Words So Brave: The Story of African American Literature

Description

written by Barbara K. Curry and James Michael Brodie illustrated by Jerry Butler

"Tell me a story," says a little girl to her grandfather. So begins this one-of-a-kind look at the history of African American literature.

From the first slave narratives and poetry of Phillis Wheatley to current writers like Toni Morrison and Maya Angelou, Sweet Words So Brave brings the lives, the times, and the extraordinary literary accomplishments of African American writers vividly to life. This is a book to cherish and share.

Full-color illustrations, black and white and color photographs; glossary; jacketed smyth-sewn reinforced hardcover.

Professional Reviews What they are saying...
  • "This is a sweeping and ambitious book . . . [that] could well encourage children to read on their own the novels and poems mentioned. And maybe, just maybe, they’ll be inspired to become the storytellers of their generation." - Washington Post Book World
