Theme: African-American plight and struggle
Children will experience a sense of community and learn about history through this compilation of poems. Definitely for the young adult, these poems reflect struggle, anger, and strength. Deep thought provoking poetry for more advanced students. Good combination of art and prose that will enlighten young adults.

I think this would be a wonderful supplement to learning about African-American history. It helps to understand their culture rather than simply studying the events that happened.
A mix of short poems by African American authors and beautiful artwork by African American artists. It's a beautiful book to look at.
many lovely poems.
