A Documentary Novel Of The Life And Work Of Lewis Michaux, Harlem Bookseller

BY VAUNDA MICHEAUX NELSON

Brief Description:
When a white banker advised him to sell fried chicken, not books, because "Negroes don't read," Lewis Michaux took five books and $100 and built a bookstore. It soon became the intellectual center of Harlem, a refuge for everyone from Muhammad Ali to Malcolm X. Michaux's great niece, Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Vaunda Micheaux Nelson, combines meticulous research with a storyteller's flair to document the life and times of an extraordinary literacy pioneer of the Civil Rights era. Young adult.
