Mr. Sleet was a very special person whose very life defined the term humanitarian. He always had time to listen, and no matter how busy, he was there to help and encourage. He wanted people to know what it meant to be black in America. Many thousands of untitled black folks walked undaunted, hand-and-hand with pain & triumph in the civil rights movement. Mr. Sleet was on the front lines to capture those special and poignant moments. He was "on the right side" to help us reach for higher ideals....the ideals of justice, perserverance, peace, humaneness, forgiveness and understanding. I am privleged to have known Mr. Sleet and to have been friends with his son, Gregory when we were at Hampton University. Indeed, Gregory who is a federal judge and who we now proudly call Judge Sleet continues to represent his father's ideals. Moneta Sleet's work reminds us every day to listen, to care and to share. I hope that everyone will buy this book and more importantly share its work and meaning with all children. Lynnette C. Velasco, Children's book Author Zinzi: A Child's Journey to Self-fulfillment, Giving, and Caring.

The pictures are moving and tell many stories of the times. This purchase exceeded the high expectations I had for it and would be a great talking piece or coffee table type book.
