Book Review: This is a terrific graphic novel filled with short stories and poems by a dozen early African-American writers.  The art work for each author is done in a unique style which adds greatly to the mood of each piece. Brief bibliographies for both writers and artists are also included at the back. This beautiful little book is a marvelous introduction to the diversity and quality of early African-American literature. I highly recommend it.
