Great piece of art-literature convergence
Lawrence is a master in poetically and esthetically driving us through his social history through images which are an exceptional treasure.

Clearly explains the life and philosophy behind the works of this amazing artist. Makes the stories that Jacob Lawrence's paintings tell come more alive - if that is even possible. A great tool to help young and old appreciate this great artist.
Great book for African American kids.
