From Our Editors

Mary McLeod Bethune worked her whole life to make the world a better place. "During the years following the Civil War in rural South Carolina where opportunities for blacks to go to school were nonexistent, Mary McLeod Bethune had to overcome many obstacles to pursue her dream of education for all children. Simply told, this biography of an outstanding black educator has excellent illustrations".--School Library Journal
