I have decided to give this biography a 3 star, only because it just kind of bored me. I think the overall story of his life is wonderful, and it was super cool to see a different perspective of "slavery". This man was half white and half black, super rich, and yet was still looked down upon and called a "mullato". I think its great the he was able to have an amazing life because of his wealth, but still ashame to see how rooted racism is in american and even worldy culture. I was just a little bored because unlike the other picture books i'm reading, this one is just very simple, plain, and straight to the point. I think it is for older elementary kids rather than the younger ones, because I think with how long each page is they might really lose interest before we finished the book. ( )

Joseph was born to a black slave and a rich white man. He did not have to work as a slave because he was half white. They moved to France after his mother was freed from slavery. There Joseph pursued music. Though Joseph was half white he was still discriminated against for being a "mulatto." He defied all odds and became the First Violin in the Orchestra. Mozart attended one of his shows and was actually inspired by him, though they never met. He continued to amaze people with his talents and played for the King and Queen of France. I like how this story uses the word mulatto to describe Joseph. It offers the chance to teach readers about the different terms that described someone's mixed relations. It also showed how these people sometimes had different experiences but were often still discriminated against. ( )

Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint George was born the son of a slave woman and her master. Although his father doted on him, he could not take his father's name because he had slave blood. Out of everything he loved, he loved music best. He became a master of the violin, being that when his family traveled to France, he was the first black allowed in the Royal residence of king Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette. Amadeus Mozart not only came to hear him play, but also became his musical partner. ( )

Joseph Boulogne was the son of an plantation owner and a black slave. When he was born the priest had decided the name Joseph because he was born on Christmas day. Joseph was a mulatto. People treated him differently. Many other Caucasian children made fun of him because he was mixed.Joseph soon became a good violinists and played for the king and queen of France. Joseph also created deux symphonies concertantes. Joseph enjoyed playing his violin and his talent was always heard.

Joseph is significant because he was the first black violinist to be invited to play for the king and queen from France. Joseph was the first black man invited to play at the palace.Joseph ignored the judgement from others and continued his dream of playing the violin.

The organization of this book begins from Joseph's birth to his death. It is a well organized read and does not lead to any confusion. ( )

At birth a midwife foreseen Joseph Boulogne meeting the king and queen of France. Joseph was the son of a black slave and her white “slave master”. A black man nor woman had never set foot in the Palace. His childhood was ideal for a mulatto growing up during his time. His father ensured he received the best musical teachings, but that did not prevent him from facing ridicule for being half black. As Joseph took to his violin lessons and grew a love for music. His father would moved he and his mother to Paris, he was certain that Paris would be great for his son. When they arrived in Paris reality quickly hit, as his mother lived outside the city, Joseph lived with his father in luxury. His father expected for people to look past his sons complexion and accept him as blood. Unfortunately the French law prevented him from giving his son his name (Guillaume-Pierre Tavernier de Boullongne). That did not stop nor discourage Joseph he would find himself playing the violin and getting lost as he played. Eventually he would play so well many would fill stadiums to hear him play. Eventually he would receive a royal invitation to play for the King and Queen. Joseph Boulogne was the first black man to ever step foot and entertain in the Palace of France. Many would voyage far to hear him play, Wolfgang Mozart although they never met.
Prior to reading this novel I had never heard of Joseph Boulogne. This book was informative and a pleasure to read. ( )
