Taxel, Joel
Curriculum Inquiry, v16 n3 p245-81 Fall 1986
Two historical youth novels have evoked controversy and criticism based on claims that the books present a distorted and inaccurate view of Black culture and history. Examines the controversies, discusses the books, and argues that the traditional evaluation process must be joined by criticism that focuses on the sociohistorical and cultural dimensions of literature. Includes extensive references. (MD)
