Mary McLeod Bethune

Amazon.com Rating:

"The drums of Africa still beat in my heart. They will not let me rest." These are the words of Mary McLeod Bethune. She worked her whole life to make the world a better place. As a child, she loved to read. As a woman, she loved to teach. She started a school; she founded a hospital. Everywhere she saw a need, she searched for a solution.

"During the years following the Civil War in rural South Carolina where opportunities for blacks to go to school were nonexistent, [Mary McLeod Bethune had to overcome many obstacles to pursue her dream of education for all children]. Simply told, this biography of an outstanding black educator has excellent illustrations." -- School Library Journal
