Reviews

"In African Icons: Ten People Who Shaped History, Baptiste engages in the hard work of unveiling the myths about the African continent to young readers. She pierces together the stories of ten people in a continent that fueled the world. This is a great beginner's guide to pre-colonial Africa."
--Ibram X. Kendi, National Book Award-winning author of Stamped from the Beginning and How to Be an Antiracist

"Readers will be fascinated by the lives of these icons and gain a real appreciation of Africa's underrepresented place in world history."
--Booklist
