Reviews - What do customers think about Black Stars of the Harlem Renaissance?

Low level Reading- High level Star  Jan 20, 2007
I actually used this book as a source for a college paper. It is one of few resources out there if you are interested in Augusta Savage. I thought it was fun, but of course would recommend it for late Elemantary School to Junior High in normal situations.
