This book is an illustrated poem written by poetauthor Kwame Alexander and illustrated by the talented Kadir Nelson It is an ode to black Americans through history both the dreamers and the doers who have made a difference despite the many injustices endured and challenges faced I was disappointed in myself for not recognizing of these important contributors to social change and justice and would have liked the people identified on each page since the book was oversized anyway In fact I would have liked the entire profiles in the afterword on each page but this would be a detraction from the poem itself and its primary audience children Happy to have learned some history too

Ssion and perseverance of some of the world's greatest heroes The text is also peppered with references to the words of Martin Luther King Jr Langston Hughes Gwendolyn Brook. My family reads all the Goodreads award nominated picture books every year This is book #10 of than 20 of 2019 and we thought it was good It's not a narrative but a kind of poetic depiction from Kwame Alexander of a range of undefeated African Americans across history beautifully illustrated by Kadir Nelson The illustrations don't identify the people but this comes with a short description of them in an appendixHank 13 3 Sending a good message for everyone but too repetitiveHarry 14 3 An inspirational book with beautiful pictures I would have preferred seeing the names and descriptions next to the pictures instead of always having to flip to the back to see who they wereTara 4 This was moving A look at historical figures InspirationalDave 35 The art puts this in a special category dramatic and beautiful but the writing I didn't find all that inspirational And as a poem it feels a little flat and unoriginal I knew all of the depicted characters and know their stories but I think young readers would need to know about them to be really inspired So it's a jumping off place where you use the appendix bios I guess It's mostly a list of people maybe appealing to adults who know the people rather than childrenI posted this and then saw Deborah shared this and Rod Brown said it was better to listen to the poem that read it so repostFor a free audio version of the poem go to hmhbookscomfreedownloads and enter UNDEFEATED as the access code
