Hidden Heroes - School Library Connection

This series highlights citizens who, despite challenges and substantial sacrifices, chose to forego their own personal aspirations in order to devote time and effort to benefit society…Each volume includes b&w and color photographs and illustrations, as well as essential facts on important figures, key works, social impacts, and a pertinent quote. This series is a necessary acquisition for secondary school libraries. Recommended

Hidden Heroes – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

A look at people who by dint of determination and skill shaped social, political, and professional arenas but typically have received little or no attention for their efforts. The coverage is thorough. Content includes not only details about what the featured groups did and why but also significant backstory…The writing is matter-of-fact and unbiased. In The Stonewall Riots, the violence perpetrated by police against protestors is addressed along with the reaction of the protestors. The illustrations consist of archival drawings and photos…the material is solid. Good selections for libraries looking for U.S. history that has often gone unacknowledged.
