Author Info
Mildred D. Taylor
Mildred Taylor is best known for her historical fiction featuring African-American families. Although Taylor was born in Mississippi, she and her family moved to Ohio as her father did not want to raise his family in the segregated South. It was during her Ohio school years that Taylor first discovered the need for historical stories about African Americans. She felt that what she and other students learned from textbooks did not accurately portray the lives and history of African Americans. Taylor attended the University of Toledo, after which she joined the Peace Corps to teach English and history in Ethiopia. Upon returning to the U.S., she entered the School of Journalism at the University of Colorado. During this time, as a member of the Black Student Alliance, she helped the university develop a black studies program. Her first book, SONG OF THE TREES, was published in 1975 after it was entered in a contest sponsored by the Council on Interracial Books for Children. Taylor's second book, ROLL OF THUNDER, HEAR MY CRY won the 1977 Newbery Medal. In 1982. LET THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN received the Coretta Scott King Award.
