Ashay's Price: $7.99

Description: Showcasing the art of 13 artists, this resonant book was inspired by a simple yet searing phrase that celebrates the achievements of African-Americans, which was featured, in various versions, online and at rallies during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Rosa sat so

Martin could march.

Martin marched so

Barack could run.

Barack ran so

Our children can soar. 

This is the seed of a unique picture book that is part historical, part poetry, and entirely inspirational. It takes the reader through the cumulative story of the US Civil Rights Movement, expanding the popular slogan beyond these three heroes to include more key players in the struggle for equality. Spare prose and vivid imagery make this a truly moving and accessible picture book to be savored by readers of all ages. (32 pgs) All Ages 

Ashay says,"I heard this poem right before President Barack Obama's swearing in and I was so happy to see it published into a children's book.  Agreed, I think this book will inspire young people, but it will also encourage them to envison themselves making positive change in the world and to reach for their higher calling.  I love the beginning words ... Our Ancestors fought.  Great book get it for the classroom."
