"A must-read for a deeper understanding of a well-connected genius who enriched the cultural road map for African Americans and books about them." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Entre los eruditos, poetas, autores y artistas del Renacimiento de Harlem, se alzaba la figura de un afropuertorriqueño llamado Arturo Schomburg. La pasión de su vida era coleccionar libros, cartas, música y arte de África y su diáspora, y dar a conocer al mundo los logros de los descendientes de África. Cuando su colección creció tanto que amenazaba con desbordarse dentro de su casa, recurrió a la Biblioteca Pública de Nueva York.
Por medio luminosas pinturas y un texto cautivador, do de los mas destacados expertos afroamericanos de la literatura infantil trazan el trayecto de Arturo Schomburg y su misión para corregir y expandir el registro histórico para futuras generaciones.
Amid the scholars, poets, authors, and artists of the Harlem Renaissance stood an Afro–Puerto Rican named Arturo Schomburg. This law clerk's passion was to collect books, letters, music, and art from Africa and the African diaspora and bring to light the achievements of people of African descent through the ages. A century later, his groundbreaking collection, known as the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, has become a beacon to scholars all over the world. In luminous paintings and arresting poems, two of children's literature's top African-American scholars track Arturo Schomburg's quest to correct history.
