MEDIA REVIEWS
A broad picture of what is currently being done in this field....Literature scholars, literacy researchers, and teachers should all find relevance in these essays... * School Library Journal, 4/1/2008 *
The selections in this book take research, theory, and practice about African American literature to a more profound level than ever before and provide important directions for examining other multicultural literature. -- Barbara Kiefer, Charlotte Huck Professor, The Ohio State University
This carefully edited volume adds significantly to the professional and scholarly body of work concerning African American literature for children and adults. This book will, I hope, open up conversations among people from a variety of disciplines; the resulting sharing will be enriching for everyone. * Language Arts, January 1, 2010 *
