Sarah Rector was once famously hailed as “the richest black girl in America.” Set against the backdrop of American history, her tale encompasses the creation of Indian Territory, the making of Oklahoma, and the establishment of black towns and oil-rich boomtowns. Rector acquired her fortune at the age of eleven. This is both her story and that of children just like her: one filled with ups and downs amid bizarre goings-on and crimes perpetrated by greedy and corrupt adults. From a trove of primary documents, including court and census records and interviews with family members, author Tonya Bolden painstakingly pieces together the events of Sarah’s life and the lives of those around her. The book includes a glossary, a bibliography, and an index. Praise for Searching for Sarah Rector STARRED REVIEWS "This handsome volume with its many photographs is carefully sourced and has a helpful glossary, illustration credits and index. Bolden admirably tells a complex story while modeling outstanding research strategy, as her insightful author’s note attests." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "This book will be extremely useful to teachers and librarians seeking material to align with Common Core State Standards dealing with the craft of writing of informational text." --School Library Journal, starred review "Bolden’s remarks on tracking down Sarah’s story will appeal to those who enjoy untangling historical mysteries." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Ishmael Reed hat sich für seine bissige Gesellschaftssatire einen der verlogensten Höhepunkte kommerzialisierten Lebens herausgesucht: das Geschäft mit dem Weihnachtsmann. Der unerträgliche Gegensatz zwischen Arm und Reich in den nordamerikanischen Großstädten, die unbekümmerte Mentalität der Amerikaner, die von den Medien beherrschte Kultur auf Disneyland-Niveau, die militante Frauenbewegung – alles das
