Ashay says, "I learned about this book when the kids in the Mindful Messages Mentoring Program read from it at a poetry event this summer. I love this book and I love the way Greg Christie illustrates with acrylic and pencil. They images are bold. Just like the true meaning of being Black ... recognizing the power just in that. Say it loud, Im Black and I am Proud! I guarantee kids will enjoy this book as a shared read aloud. Must have for the classroom and library!"
