Our Children Can Soar: A Celebration of Rosa, Barack, and the Pioneers of Change
Rosa sat so Martin could march. Martin marched so Barack could run.
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.
Illustrated by: Leo Dillon, Diane Dillon, Eric Velasquez, R. Gregory Christie, James E. Ransome, Bryan Collier, Shadra Strickland, Frank Morrison, Pat Cummings, Cozbi Cabrera, Charlotte Riley-Webb, AG Ford, and E. B. Lewis
