We Build Together.
Rollins, Charlemae, Ed.
This bibliography, like two previous editions in 1941 and 1948, lists those books for children and young people which present Negroes as human beings and not as stereotypes. The introduction assesses the progress which has been made in this area since the first edition in 1941 and articulates the guidelines for selection. The books cited are ordered into the following categories--(1) picturebooks and easy-to-read books, (2) fiction, (3) history, (4) biography, (5) poetry, folklore, and music, (6) science, and (7) sports (both fiction and nonfiction). Each entry notes the recommended grade level and includes a brief evaluative description of the book and summary of its contents. Author and title indexes are provided as well as a list of sources for books, a directory of publishers, and an index to the biographies cited in the bibliography.
