Summary:
"Brown Gold is a history and analysis of African-American children's picture books from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. At the turn of the nineteenth century, good children's books about black life were hard to find - if, indeed, young black readers and their parents could even gain entry into the bookstores and libraries at the time. But today, in the "Golden Age" of Africa-American children's picture books, one can find a wealth of titles ranging from Happy to be Nappy to Black is Brown is Tan."--Jacket.
