Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
This unique picture book is part history, part poetry, and entirely inspirational. It takes the reader step by simple step through the cumulative story of the US Civil Rights Movement, showing how select pioneers' achievements led up to the landmark moment when we elected our first black president. Each historical figure is rendered by a different award-winning illustrator, highlighting the singular and vibrant contribution that each figure made.
Amazon.com Review
This gorgeous picture book takes young readers through the cumulative story of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement in poetry and pictures (click on any image to enlarge). The illustrations introduce icons like Jesse Owens and Rosa Parks, as well as lesser-known figures in the struggle for equality. Spare prose and vivid imagery make this a truly moving and accessible book that readers of all ages will treasure.

Take a Look Inside



Jesse sprinted...


so Rosa could sit. Rosa sat...





so Martin could march. Martin marched...


so Barack could run. Barack ran...
so our children can soar
