African American Authors and Illustrators

By January 13, 2009

Follow me on:

John Henry by Jerry Pinkney cover art One of the requests I often receive is for a list of African American authors and illustrators of children's books. When I finally found one, it quickly disappeared from the Web. I have now located a new one and have added it to my Africa/African American directory. The directory contains my book reviews of related children's books, including John Henry, followed by links to other sites, including the African-American Authors and Illustrators of Children's Books list from the Harford County (MD) Public Library. There, you will find several recommended reading lists, followed by a list of African American children's book authors and illustrators.

Hello Elizebeth,

My name is Donna Dumas. I read John Henry to my nieces and nephews. We all enjoyed it! I am a new author and would love for you to read my book and hopefully blog about it as well! It will be forthcoming this spring through Mirror publishing. The name is Hard Head Fred. If this is at all possible, please contact me asap. I am very excited to share my artful experiences with the world!
