"Hopkinson skillfully shapes Carter's childhood, family history and formative experiences into a cohesive story....the inclusion of notable figures from black history reinforces the theme (a key is in the backmatter). An important and inspiring tale well told."
"Young readers will be caught up in his story.... Quotes are seamlessly woven into the narrative, and a time line, list of sources, and bibliography add research appeal. Of special note are the illustrations, which include more than 40 portraits of black leaders... Their images and one-line biographies will pique further interest, making this a valuable resource for school and public libraries."
"Thorough back matter... A charmingly illustrated picture book biography for elementary schoolers."
"Conversational... Delicately textured mixed-media illustrations...offer spare, stylized images..."
