Jackie Ormes chronicles the life of this multiply talented, fascinating woman." "The biography's more than 150 illustrations include photographs of Jackie Ormes and a large sampling of her cartoons and color comic strips, including some furnished by cartoonist and cartoon historian Tim Jackson. Ormes's work provides an invaluable glimpse into American culture and history, with topics that include racial segregation, U.S. foreign policy, educational equality, the atom bomb, and environmental pollution, among other pressing issues of the times - and of today's world as well."--BOOK JACKET.Goldstein, Nancy is the author of 'Jackie Ormes The First African American Woman Cartoonist', published 2007 under ISBN 9780472116249 and ISBN 047211624X.
