Children's Literature as a Pathway of Possibilities
Wilkins, Ebony Joy
Journal of Education, v194 n1 p67-68 2014
Visionaries like W. E. B. Du Bois opened the door to possibility and opportunity for the next generations of African American artists. Among those who benefited from and contributed to this legacy are award-winning African American authors and illustrators who created works that celebrate Black children, equality, and diversity. These artists encouraged, entertained, informed, and passed along accurate messages about African American culture and race. Artists like those I have celebrated in this article have created a pathway for those to come.
