Have your tissues handy! Kwame Alexander never disappoints. This is a beautifully written and stunningly illustrated picture book speaks to the resilience and strength of African Americans throughout history and beyond. It also has a glossary explaining the impact made by people referenced.

A beautiful and powerful poetic anthem to Afro-American strength, the struggles that have been overcome, and the hope for an even better future. Kadir Nelson's gorgeous images perfectly match the highs and lows of Kwame Alexander's dynamic poem.

"I wanted to establish from the very beginning that much of what I'm talking about in this poem, so much of American history, has been forgotten, left out of the textbooks, and that to truly know who we are as a country, we have to accept and embrace all of our woes and wonders." --author Kwame Alexander
