  • Schomburg: The Man Who Built a Library

    By Carole Boston Weatherford

    Illustrated by Eric Velasquez

    Read by Ron Butler

    Where is our historian to give us our side? Arturo asked.

    "All of the book's details paint Schomburg as an admirable, flawed, likable, passionate man whose lasting legacy, Harlem's Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, opens its doors to all who would learn more about the people its founder knew had been left out of the written record. A must-read for a deeper understanding of a well-connected genius who enriched the cultural road map for African-Americans and books about them." - Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
