Harlem Hellfighters (YA)
Book #96 Read in 2014
Harlem Hellfighters by J. Patrick Lewis
I don't really know how to categorize this book so here it goes: it is a graphic novel about true events...that makes sense, right? This book details the contribution of African-American soldiers during World War I. It contains beautiful illustrations, short verse poetry and power messages. This is a very quick read and can be used as an introduction to historical events on a K-12 level. I borrowed this book from the public library.
