From award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Ibi Zoboi comes her debut picture book—a tour de force that uses the principles of Kwanzaa to talk about the history of African Americans. This lyrical, powerful tribute is sumptuously illustrated by rising star Loveis Wise.
The People Remember tells the journey of African descendants in America by connecting their history to the seven principles of Kwanzaa. This is an important book to read as a family—a story young readers can visit over and over again to deepen their understanding of African American history in relation to their own lives and current social justice movements. By turns powerful and revealing, this is a lyrical narrative that tells the story of survival as well as the many moments of joy, celebration, and innovation of Black people in America.
