Rezension:

"This two-volume set profiles 24 African Americans prominent in the history of civil rights in the United States. Each biography explores the life of the subject over the course of 20 pages or so, placing the person's involvement in civil rights struggles within the context of their own life courses and within the context of the broader sweep of history. Each entry includes a black and white photographic portrait and a guide to further resources." - Reference & Research Book News "The essays are well written ... Recommended." - Choice "Entries are clearly written and capture in a popular, often candid manner what the men and women overcame in their personal and professional lives to achieve a better nation, including difficult home situations, discrimination, injustice, and other obstacles to success... The set will be useful in public and academic libraries, for both students and general readers." - Booklist "Knight brings to life the work, thoughts, and contributions of 24 trailblazing activists. Their life stories, told in great detail, provide readers with new insight on the achievements and experiences of each icon. This work, aimed primarily at high school students and general readers, would be a good addition to public and high school library collections lacking book length biographies on these civil rights activists. Lower-level undergraduate students may find this work of value as a basic introduction to important figures of the twentieth-century civil rights movement." - ARBA
