Description

'The distinguished novelist has culled his personal collection of turn-of-the-century photographs of African-American children and composed the verses that accompany this enchanting selection of youngsters.' --NYT. 'A unique celebration of the continuum of human life and of childhood in all its robustness, fragility, and evanescent beauty. . . . An exquisite album. The 42 superbly reproduced black-and-white and sepia prints radiate intensely with the personalities of their subjects.' --SLJ. 'The poet, inspired by the photographs, affirms the black experience in a lyrical, tender, and sometimes humorous voice.' --H.
