Artist Feelings invited poets whom he admired to compose original, short verses for these drawings, with breathtakingly rich and powerful results. Together they created a tribute to African-American creativity, the collection should appeal to the sensibilities and imaginations of many readers, regardless of ethnic background. This book includes a never-before published poem by Langston Hughes, written to accompany Feeling's 1962 poster for the Congress of Racial Equality. Maya Angelou, Walter Dean Myers, Haki Madhuti and Lucille Clifton are among the 12 other contributors. The full-color, three-quarter and double-spread art depicts children and young people from West Africa, South America, and the United States, (40 pgs) All Ages
Ashay says, "This is a classic in the true sense and represents some of the best in African American culture. This book is timeless and will always have a place. Must have for the library."
