's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: poetry, picture-books

Langston Hughes' powerful and simple poem is brilliantly accompanied by Charles R. Smith's transcendent photographs. Each photograph illustrates the beauty, depth and soul of being an African-American today. From close ups of lined hands to the joy of a baby's giggle, the photographs span ages. The photographs are clear, purposefully done and gripping.

Highly recommended, this book belongs in every public library. It is a joy to read the powerful poem and have it illustrated with such skill. Appropriate for all ages.
