Bibliography for What Do You Do With a Voice Like That?

The back matter for What Do You Do with a Voice Like That? The Story of Extraordinary Congresswoman Barbara Jordan will include a two-page timeline, my author’s note, Ekua Holmes’ illustrator’s note, and suggestions for viewing, listening, and further reading.

With all this material that Beach Lane Books/Simon & Schuster does include in those final pages, there wasn’t room to also include a bibliography of the sources I found most helpful in writing the text for the book.

So, I’m presenting them here, and the book includes the URL for the What Do You Do with a Voice Like That? page on my website, which in turn links to this post.
