The Undefeated by Kwame Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Alexander's poem, along with Nelson's beautiful illustrations, paints a pictorial and oral history of black life in the United States. Through contrasts between past and present, readers are immersed in the traumas of slavery, civil rights, and #blacklivesmatter; the determination and grit of black Olympians, activists, and sports heroes; and the power and culture of black arts through writing, song, and voice.
