Abstract:

Author Darwin McBeth Walton was born on September 16, 1926, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Walton received her B.A. degree in music from the Chicago Conservatory of Music in 1950. She later received her M.E. degree in teaching from National-Louis University in 1973. That same year, Walton published her first book, What Color Are You? It was one of the first books about America's diversity to be used in public schools. Her next book, Overcoming Challenges, was the story of astronaut Major General Charles F. Bolden, one of the first four black astronauts in the U.S. Her highly acclaimed middle-grade novel, Dance Kayla, was chosen as one of the best books of 1990 by the Banks Street College of Education. Her other books included Kwanzaa: A World of Holidays; Nana's Kitchen; two books on the Underground Railroad: They Walked with Courage and Jetty's Journey; and two early readers: Part of My Family and Families Are Special.
