PBD: Picturebooks by Kadir Nelson

The picturebooks of Kadir Nelson feature the lives and stories of famous African Americans. His artwork has won numerous awards and is featured on his website at: https://www.kadirnelson.com and in a new gallery exhibit at http://hearnefineart.com

His realistic paintings and extensive research bring to life the joys and struggles of these historical characters. I eagerly await every new picturebook that features his illustrations.


  1. Love these books! The artwork, and the stories, are amazing. My students love them, too!
