Book Review: Heart and Soul; The Story of America and African Americans

Kadir Nelson Heart and Soul

In honor of the January 1st (1863) signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, we're sharing this beautiful book by Kadir Nelson that captures the journey of Africans in America.

Heart and Soul: The Story of America and African Americans is a story of hope and courage. But it is also the story of injustice of a country divided by law, education, and wealth of a people whose struggles and achievements helped define their country (from inside flap)

This book features things that might make your cringe or feel angry. But there are also parts that would make you proud or even laugh a little. You gotta take the good with the bad, I guess. You have to know where you come from so you can move forward. (from the back cover)

The pictures in this book bring to life the stories that the book shares. It's a great read for children and adults!
