Synopsis

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.

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
