I love the artwork in this book. Everything cobbled together feeling like motion and life. Each page has a poem on it; an ode to Harlem and what it meant to its people. It’s a place of freedom where people of color can feel equal and have a chance. It’s an idea for certain. This blend of poetry and art together make for a very powerful idea.

The niece thought this was good. She enjoyed the verse and was curious about this place. She gave it 3 stars. The nephew didn’t get into this story. He doesn’t have a whole lot of patience and he said this was at least a fast story, but still boring. He gave it 2 stars.
