Reviews for Harlem Renaissance : An Interactive History Adventure

Booklist Reviews 2013 December #1
History can take many paths and these entries in the You Choose: History series prove just that. After a brief introduction to the time period, the books use a "Choose Your Own Adventure"-style format that follows three fictional young people through historical ups and downs--including, sometimes, death. Complemented by archival photographs and reproductions, the brisk text highlights key events, people, and places. Whether to leave race riots, become a writer, or explore nightlife, three African Americans head to Harlem in The Harlem Renaissance and discover flourishing arts, music, literature, and pride. Each title concludes with a chapter about the time period's legacy and extensive back matter to encourage further exploration. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.
