Description

Brimming with passion, beauty, flow, and style, here is an ABC book like no other - a celebration of Black history and culture in lively verse, matched with illustrations that are each like a folk painting.

Written by the poet Rio Cortez and illustrated by Lauren Semmer, the book teaches the ABCs in a far more interesting and meaningful way than the usual "A is for apple, B is for ball." Letters represent history - G is for the Great Migration. Culture - K for Kwanzaa. People and places - H is for Harlem and Zora Neale Hurston. And big ideas - like B for beautiful, bold, brave, brotherhood.

R is for rise, to reach for the top. Relentlessly striving, refusing to stop Like ballplayers, boxers, and gymnasts who fly. Like presidents and justices who dared to ask why?
