Nashida: Visits the Smith Robertson Museum is one of the best historical and academic children books I have ever read. It is full with local knowledge of African Americans who made significant contributions to society. It provides evidence of the struggles of Black Mississippians and depicts what life was like during slavery and segregation. Illustrations and pictures guides readers understand of the written words. The book gives children the sense that they can overcome anything, no matter the situation, with knowledge and hard work. This book will make Black children feel relevant and proud of their heritage. Is a must read for children of all ages.
