Harlem's Little Blackbird: The Story of Florence Mills

Illustrated by: Christian Robinson
Age Level: 3-6

Bold, bright illustrations and a cheerful text that includes song lyrics introduce the life of an early 20th century African American performer. Though part of the Harlem Renaissance, Mills is a relative unknown who both on and off stage worked to help other African Americans and those who were less fortunate than she. An author's note concludes this charming life sketch.
