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 same politician famously espoused. This eloquent picture book biography captures the life and times of its hero with the aid of many full-page scratchboard/oil paintings by Brian Pinkney.
