I bow to both your internet search skills. Was I blind or was this information actually available on the NAACP site?

I actually did not think they would give Hill awards in both categories. I knew he would win one.

Whoopie was a suprise, but deserved defeat. The "Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom," is a Black book, with great illustrations.

...after visiting the NAACP web site, it looks like the voting is by the public, if that is the case; then that fact that celebrity is factor comes as no surprise. People, in the aggregate, will vote for the most popular author or subject.

Thanks again, this will go into the next newsletter.

Peace
