Book Overview

Celebrated author Carole Boston Weatherford and illustrator Floyd Cooper provide a powerful look at the Tulsa Race Massacre, one of the worst incidents of racial violence in our nation's history. The book traces the history of African Americans in Tulsa's Greenwood district and chronicles the devastation that occurred in 1921 when a white mob attacked the Black community.

News of what happened was largely suppressed, and no official investigation occurred for seventy-five years. This picture book sensitively introduces young readers to this tragedy and concludes with a call for a better future.

   Educational for Everyone
The illustrations are exceptional, but the writing is exceptional. The book breaks down the events of the infamous Tulsa Massacre so that anyone can comprehend the gravity of this historical event.
   Recommend for Family Libraries
The book, "Outstanding: The Story of a Young Man," was first published in 2001. The book details the life of Dr. Abraham Lincoln and the infamous race riot at the school. No More Whitewashing, Hollywood.
   Real history /easy to reach kids
Simple pictures and explanations. Able to be honest with history but not too much for kids, he said. Youngsters could understand and earn without being overwhelmed by the task at hand, he said. I bought it for my two daughters, ages 9 and 13 at the time.
   Unspeakable Truths That Need to be Spoken Aloud
The truth about Dr. Goin's behaviour needs to be spoken. He added that the city's history needs to be taught. Beautifully drawn images of animals, the book's cover says, "make the illustrations stand out." The book is a compelling read, Crowe said.
   A Good book to teach a tough story.
However, we are delighted that the story is not complete. The document says no one was injured in the attack, but it doesn't say what happened to the man accused of assaulting the woman in the elevator. Even if there was no such incident, the Harrisons would have been in trouble, since nothing happened there. The whole thing was a false arrest, Morgenthau said. The book is well done, but there are some quibbles. History aside, this is a great book.
Such a difficult and tragic part of Oklahoman and American history -- but told in an accessible way for young children and has beautiful illustrations, he said.
   Age appropriate
Beautifully written and illustrated by Robert Hein, this book will stand in a class by itself. My granddaughter asked some questions and a healthy age appropriate discussion was had between me and her, Raymond said.
   Essential reading for all
The book is a powerful, yet accessible retelling of a horrific and suppressed time in American history. Every single child needs to know this story so that it never happens again, he said. The illustrator's note, detailing Floyd Cooper's family connection to the race massacre, makes the book all the more affecting. What a beautiful woman, Hepburn said.
