Let the Truth Be Told By Dean Walter Myers
Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Walter Dean Myers tells the story of this legendary figure, his powerful words blending harmoniously with the historically detailed watercolor paintings of illustrator Bonnie Christensen. As Booklist noted: Myers' masterful text is well matched by Christensen's somber watercolor illustrations: neither soft-pedals the injustice and cruelty to African Americans.
Brightly added: Myers's unflinching tale highlights Wells's courage and persistence by using her own words and writings throughout, and sharing the many moments of her life when she refused to accept discrimination and raised her voice for justice
