I Lay My Stitches Down: Poems of American Slavery

Cynthia Grady (A) and Michele Wood (ILT)

List Price: $17.00 (Hardcover - Poetry / Slave Experiences - 2011)

Description: This rich and intricate collection of poems chronicles the various experiences of American slaves. Drawn together through imagery drawn from quilting and fiber arts, each poem is spoken from a different perspective: a house slave, a mother losing her daughter to the auction block, a blacksmith, a slave fleeing on the Underground Railroad.

This moving and eloquent set of poems, brought to life by vivid and colorful artwork from Michele Wood, offers a timeless witness to the hardship endured by America slaves. Each poem is supplemented by a historical note. (34 pgs) All Ages

Ashay says, "This is a wonderful book of poetry that tells real stories and experiences of an enslaved people. But in the background, spirit was always present and hope was running free. Great art and content. Must have for the classroom!"
