Description: The story of America and African Americans is a story of hope and inspiration and unwavering courage. But it is also the story of injustice; of a country divided by law, education, and wealth; of a people whose struggles and achievements helped define their country.
Kadir Nelson, one of this generation's most accomplished, award-winning artists, has created an epic yet intimate introduction to the history of America and African Americans, from colonial days through the civil rights movement. Written in the voice of an "Everywoman," an unnamed narrator whose forebears came to this country on slave ships and who lived to cast her vote for the first African American president, Heart and Soul touches on some of the great transformative events and small victories of that history. This inspiring book demonstrates that in gaining their freedom and equal rights, African Americans helped our country achieve its promise of liberty and justice-the true heart and soul of our nation. (108 pgs) Ages 9-12
Ashay says,"Heart and Soul is spectacular and it won the 2012 Coretta Scott King Aware for Best Author. This book represents another Award Winning Book for Kadir Nelson, who for me is one of the "greatest artists" in childrens literature today. His art is always rich and full of expression. It just speaks to you and resonates in your soul. Kadir also illustrated We Are The Ship, Mama Miti and Moses. Every library and classroom has to have this book. Buy it today. Go Kadir. Ashe!"
