This eloquent photoessay, built around hundreds of black-and-white photographs (many from the author's own collection) tells an extraordinary history; a dramatic spread with photos of Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Dubois is followed by images of a school band and friends taking a swim; scenes from the Great Migration give way to portraits of the artists of the Harlem Renaissance. For readers young and old. Ages 9-12. (Nov.)r
