We are our grandmother's prayers, our grandfather's dreamings, and the breath of our ancestors. We are filled with imagination and hope, big dreams and endless possibilities. We are different, yet we are all the same. We are one.
From Ysaye Barnwell, of the revered African American women's a cappella group Sweet Honey In The Rock, and Caldecott Honor winner Brian Pinkney comes a poetic tribute to community, togetherness, and diversity in the universal language of music.
"This original hardcover is accompanied by a musical CD that features the exquisite song "We Are . . .""
