From Slave Ship to Freedom Road
 Picture
Publisher: New York 2000.
with no dust jacket; New book. Penguin Puffin Later Printing Paperback 4to 11" - 13" tall; 40 pages; Paintings by Rod Brown. The purpose of this book is to help people of all colors imagine what it was like to be a slave, how it felt to be suddenly jerked away from the world and culture you knew, packed into a ship for three months going you knew not where under conditions that were intolerable, and then landing in a new culture with a new language where you were forced to work for people who now owned you. Lester's purpose is not only to help us understand and feel the past, but also to help us understand what we, ourselves, might be capable of if we were in a culture that considered evil good. The bold paintings that illustrate this book are also meant to lead us into deeper understanding of the whole slave experience.; ISBN: 0140566694

Publisher: 2009.
New with no dust jacket Crabtree Publishing Company Paperback Graphic America; 0.2 x 9.6 x 6.7 Inches; 32 pages; This book covers the history of African Americans from the Civil War until the present day. Topics covered include The Emancipation Proclamation, Abolition, Sharecropping, Civil Rights, Jim Crow Laws, the rise of the Klu Klux Klan, and the continuing hope for future improvement in racial relations Books in this series are intended for children ages 8-9, but I think they also would appeal to older reluctant readers. Each book also contains a time line, glossary, and index in the back, and these are written in upper case, white letters on black background. There are no colons between words and their definitions in the glossary. Instead the terms are in bold face and the definitions in regular type face.

Publisher: Minneapolis 2006.
New with no dust jacket; New book with light edge wear from being on display. Millbrook (Lerner Publications) Later Printing Paperback 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 64 pages; Although Johnson was talented and already more successful as a teacher, lawyer, diplomat and writer than most African Americans of his time could hope to be, he was increasingly disturbed by the way other blacks in America were being treated. From 1916 until the 1930s he traveled through the country speaking out for equal opportunities for black people. He became the first executive secretary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Today he is best known as a poet, statesman, and the author of the words to the song "Lift Every Voice and Sing." I remember him as the author of an anthem our choir used to sing when I was in high school from his book of sermons in verse, God's Trombones, which was set to music. For ages 9-13.
