James Ransome is a children’s book illustrator as well as the recipient of several awards, including the Coretta Scott King award and the NAACP award. His southern background has left him fascinated by the struggles and victories of African Americans and those events are the primary focus of many of his books which often center around retelling African American folktales or memorializing African American sport and historical legends.
