About the author (2008)

JIM HASKINS, the author of more than one hundred books, has an unparalleled background in nonfiction for young readers. He received the Coretta Scott King Medal for THE STORY OF STEVIE WONDER, and several other of his titles were named Coretta Scott King Honor Books. What the author most admires about W. W. Law, he says, is "his complete dedication to the causes in which he believed — first equal rights and later the preservation of historic sites of importance to black people. He was truly an unsung hero."

BENNY ANDREWS was a painter, printmaker, cultural leader, and arts advocate. His work can be found in more than thirty major museums.
