Description

Family relationships are explored and affirmed in this joyful anthology of poems celebrating the diversity of African American families. Michael Strickland, editor of the anthology "Poems That Sing to You," has collaborated with his mother, noted educator Dorothy Strickland, to bring us this warm collection. "Families: Poems Celebrating the African American Experience" gathers poems that take as their source deeply felt values of belonging, creativity, and mutual respect, values rooted in African American history and passed on as a rich heritage to new generations. John Ward's radiant illustrations highlight compelling poems by Lucille Clifton, Eloise Greenfield, Lindamichellebaron, Gwendolyn Brooks, Langston Hughes, and others.
