about this item

A powerful and thought-provoking Civil Rights era memoir from one of America’s most celebrated poets.Looking back on her childhood in the 1950s, Newbery Honor winner and National Book Award finalist Marilyn Nelson tells the story of her development as an artist and young woman through fifty eye-opening poems. Readers are given an intimate portrait of her growing self-awareness and artistic inspiration along with a larger view of the world around her: racial tensions, the Cold War era, and the first stirrings of the feminist movement.A first-person account of African-American history, this is a book to study, discuss, and treasure.
