Beautiful illustrations and eloquent words woven together bring this book to life. Best audience is elementary age for comprehension of its depth. “Black is a Rainbow Color” is the poetic conclusion drawn when at first it seems black is NOT a rainbow color. This book traverses the rich history of what it means and has meant to be black in the United States. Added bonus after the story are several pages with a song playlist, poems, and even more powerful and clear history. Much more than just a storybook, a great introductory history book too.
