Dear Benjamin Banneker This tribute to the pioneering black scientist, Benjamin Banneker, takes its title from the letter he received from Thomas Jefferson in reply to his complaint that slavery and owning slaves contradicted the doctrines of equality that politician famously espoused. This picture book biography captures the life and times of its hero with the aid of luminous full-page scratchboard/oil paintings by Brian Pinkney.
