Please note that this page, formerly known as Joe Mele's Super Homepage, is in no way related to the print magazine Multicultural Book Review.

The purpose of this page is to create a qualitative list of multicultural literature for K-12 educators. We would like to avoid presenting just lists of books, but instead give educators a chance to find out a little more information about multicultural literature others have used successfully.

If you would like to send us some books you have used or that you have read, please use to the Forms Page Link. Please note, if you are using a browser that doesn't like forms, or doesn't like this type of form, i.e. AOL, please use Joe's e-mail address, which can be found below.
To submit your own books, go to the: FORMS PAGE.

Mama Day Gloria Naylor, Vintage Books, 1988, African-American, one female and one male, fiction.
Wonderfully rich, engrossing, and emotional tale about a man, a woman, and the woman's great-aunt, Mama Day.It's a story about love, history, family, death, and the continuance of life. Wonderful.
Suitable for high school. Grade: A+
