Reviews - What do customers think about Roy Wilkins: Leader Of The Naacp?
176 pages of detail covering the life of Wilkins Jun 14, 2005
Two new biogaphies for teen readers are highly recommended picks, standing out from the wealth of biographies about the same folks, and adding depth and political perspective to the focus. Roy Wilkins: Leader Of The NAACP by Calvin Craig Miller provides 176 pages of detail covering the life of Wilkins, who joined the NAACP and became an active crusader against discrimination, dedicating his life to nonviolent confrontations. While Wilkins was one of the most important leaders of the civil rights movement at its height, this is one of the few teen biographies to give him a full, in-depth and detailed analysis. Highly recommended.
