A Gift from Greensboro is at once an elegy, a celebration of the magic of childhood friendship, and a meditation on growing up in the wake of the sit-ins that ushered in the Civil Rights Movement. Paired with intricate, layered illustrations, this poem recognizes that true friendship knows no boundaries and that love drives positive change.
With an informative, accessible afterword by the author.
Be/Hold: A Friendship Book uses word play, compound words, and bright splashes of color to explore ways of uplifting those we love, even through challenging times.
