Robert E. Constant's children's book, Hey Tuskegee! provides a guided tour of one of America's hotbeds of Black History, Tuskegee University and the Alabama city that surrounds it. But here's a secret: it's not just for children. Robert's straightforward narrative, through the eyes of a young brother and sister, provides a clear review of some key chapters in the history of African-Americans that the rest of us may not know, but should. Robert's family history reads like a chapter in the Tuskegee alumni journal and informs this interesting and articulate author's story.
