Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Journey to Freedom: The African American Library from School Library Journal on February 1, 2002

Easy-to-read summaries of the topics. Slavery includes information on the history of bondage in America and the treatment of slaves through the Civil War. Civil Rights covers Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, and other figures who are less well known. Underground Railroad tells the stories of some of the fugitives, including Henry ‘Box’ Brown’s train journey to Philadelphia. The books have double-column, large-print texts and generous amounts of white space. All three titles are illustrated with numerous sepia-toned photographs. Slavery and Underground also have color illustrations. Captions are informative. These volumes are suitable for schools needing additional material or succinct treatments.
