Reviews - What do customers think about Tell All the Children Our Story: Memories and Mementos of Being Young and Black in America?

Can't recommend it highly enough!  May 23, 2003
Imagine a scrapbook compiled collectively and intimately by African Americans from the first recorded birth of a black child in Jamestown, through the Revolution, Civil War, Reconstruction and right up to our own time, amply illustrated with compelling images, literature, personal recollections, art works, cartoons and ephemera, and you might begin to picture this book. It's impossible to describe fully...you really have to experience it. I can't recommend this book highly enough...there's something new and amazing to be found on every page!
