This is a wonderful and engaging children’s book. I found myself reading it in the voice of eight-year-old Nashida. Author Meredith Coleman McGee makes reading history fun again.

NOTE BY A DESCENDANT OF MOSES “CAP” MEREDITH
This was a very informational children’s book narrated by an eight-year-old fictional character. I have been in Mississippi all my life and didn’t know all the history in this book. The Moses Meredith Cultural Arts Book Series will be an asset to teach children culture and history.

Scott S. Smith 5.0 out of 5 starsAn important book about history for kids–and adultsAugust 11, 2019 – Published on Amazon.comChildren are our best hope for a better future and knowing American history is a vital foundation. Meredith McGee helped me with a profile of James Meredith based on her book and she has now taken the vital, educational, and even entertaining message of African American history in the South to another audience–not only kids, but their parents, who should be inspired to be involved in civics and politics.
