From June '05 Children's BookwatchTwo new biographies for teen readers are highly recommended picks, standing out from the wealth of biographies about the same folks, and adding depth and political perspective to the focus. Roy Wilkins: Leader Of The NAACP by Calvin Craig Miller (1931798494) provides 176 pages of detail covering the life of Wilkins, who joined the NAACP and became an active crusader against discrimination, dedicating his life to nonviolent confrontations. While Wilkins was one of the most important leaders of the civil rights movement at its height, this is one of the few teen biographies to give him a full, in-depth and detailed analysis. Highly recommended. A Stranger In My Own House: The Story Of W.E.B. Du Bois (1931798451) by Bonnie Hinman joins other biographies for this age group with a difference: it focuses on his basic convictions that political and economic equality equaled a voluntary segregation as a means to achieving these goals. Chapters follow his press for the liberation of blacks around the world, and reveal the foundations for many of his controversial beliefs. Also an important guide.
