Marcus and the Amazons has made the cut!
The Kart Foundation has published the 2011 Kart Kids Book List, and from over a thousand entries, Marcus and the Amazons, has been chosen as one of the thirty-two recommended titles for 2011.
I am deeply grateful to be included on this list. I hope that Marcus's story, which the Kart judges described as an "adventure fable that combines Caribbean & North American history while honoring the values of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. & Marcus Garvey," will inspire young readers to follow the example of these two great leaders, my heroes, who devoted their lives to freedom and justice.
"Set the captives free!"
