"Beautiful illustrations and short, informative paragraphs come together. . . . While excellent for music classes, the wealth of historical context makes this a good pick for lessons on the history of U.S. slavery as well."--Booklist

"An important work that gives new life to old and important songs."--Kirkus Reviews
