Two Starred Reviews!
*"Excellent storytelling in word and image unite in this essential biography of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall (1908–1993).... Winter and Collier have created a catalyst that will inspire readers to learn more about this giant of American history." (Publisher's Weekly, starred review) Read the review
*"By framing this biography as a series of facts and including inequitable practices endured by African Americans during the period, Winter sets a tone well suited to Marshall’s life story. Personal anecdotes give the facts context as well as emotional resonance.... A memorable portrait of a legal giant." (Booklist, starred review)
"This lively narrative serves as an introduction to the life of one of the country’s important civil rights figures.... The bold watercolor-and-collage illustrations, beginning with an enticing cover, capture and enhance the strong tone set by the words. A larger-than-life subject is neatly captured in text and images." (Kirkus Reviews) Read the review
