JUNETEENTH OUR DAY OF FREEDOM

on May 6, 2022

My latest book is having its BOOK BIRTHDAY! This non-fiction Step Into Reading book, published by Random House, wasn’t just labor, but a labor of love, dedicated to one of my own enslaved ancestors, Minerva Bell Lewis. Historically accurate and nuanced illustrations by Kim Holt tell a complete story on their own. The contemporary portion of the book is full of joy! Thank you, Random House for inviting me to write about this symbolic historic event. JUNETEENTH! Now a federal holiday! Celebrating equality and “freedom for all!” NOW AN AUDIO BOOK! https://bit.ly/3wjbZz7
