HISTORY
Evans, Shane W.

Underground

(2) K-3 With dramatic images and minimal narrative, Evans projects a "we-are-there" experience of escaping slaves. White stars stand out against a richly textured midnight blue, as do the triangular whites of the fugitives' eyes and the bold white typeface itself; a golden sun rises on the final view of freedom. Adults discussing black history with five- and six-year-olds can use this visually intense evocation.
