KIRKUS REVIEW

Short biographies of: Peter Salem, Jean Baptiste Pointe de Sable, Phillis Wheatley, Benjamin Banneker, Paul Cuffe and John Chavis. The tendency to stageset the scene and supply conversation during the early lives of these subjects is unfortunate. However, for the later, more important years, the treatment is straightforward.
