    Maritcha (Paperback) A Nineteenth-Century American Girl. By Tonya Bolden. Harry N. Abrams, , 56pp. Publication Date: Ma Other Editions of This Title. Bolden, whose books include the Coretta Scott King Honor Book Maritcha (), brings readers close to the great leader and to the civil rights movement through detailed historical analysis and extensive notes. In an author’s note, Bolden says she chose not to detail King’s flaws but rather to focus on the “dream.” The chatty style is.

    Her book include Maritcha: A Nineteenth-Century American Girl, a Coretta Scott King honor book, James Madison Book Award winner. Bolden’s MLK: Journey of a King received the National Council of Teachers of English’s Orbis Pictus Award for Outstanding Nonfiction for Children, and Facing Frederick: The Life of Frederick Douglass, A. As an assistant principal, Maritcha helped to integrate PS 83 in Weeksville. She was also an accomplished musician and avid writer. Her unpublished memoir, Memories of Yesterdays, and a children’s book, Maritcha: A Nineteenth Century American Girl allow present day audiences to learn all about this remarkable woman. We couldn’t be prouder.
