Great Black Writers includes biographies of Ida Wells-Barnett, Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, Alex Haley, James Baldwin, and Lorraine Hansbury.
"Each biographical sketch outlines the connection between the writer's life experiences and his or her writing, and explores the challenges each individual faced and overcame in the process of becoming a writer. This historical fact-based book may inspire children in the higher elementary school grades and new adult learners to have a greater appreciation for what they read--and perhaps encourage some to become writers, themselves."
Great Black Writers is an advanced level reader. Part of the Contributions Series from Open Hand Publishing.
Also available in paperback (441-0009).
