A beautiful poem that blends history and current feelings. It is about a teacher trying to teach about slavery in the US but doesn't know how. At one point she wants to stop but the children want her to continue. BEAUTIFUL!

I think that this book can be very empowering for African Americans and I think that it is something that could be used in a classroom for a number of purposes.

This is a great book for older kids to read or be read aloud to, to leave room for questions about some of the things that are mentioned in the book relating to those who have passed. This is a great book for Black History month and to talk about on the Martin Luther King Jr. remembrance day.
