Description: In a reflective tribute to the African-American community of old, noted poet Ntozake Shange recalls her childhood home and the close-knit group of innovators that often gathered there. These men of vision, brought to life in the majestic paintings of artist Kadir Nelson, lived at a time when the color of their skin dictated where they could live, what schools they could attend, and even where they could sit on a bus or in a movie theater. Yet in the face of this tremendous adversity, these dedicated souls and others like them not only demonstrated the importance of Black culture in America, (40 pgs) Ages 4-8
Ashay says, "This is one of my favorite books. In his art Kadir captures everything grand about African American culture in the 50's. Also listed and illustrated in the back of the book is a short bio of Ellington and more great African American legends. You must have this book for your library!"
