June 5th, 2020 | 10:30 AM – 12 PM | The Book Tavern Facebook Live
Join us this Friday, June 5th for Super Awesome Storytime live stream. We will have a special guest reader, Skyler Andrews, reading for us BLACK IS A RAINBOW COLOR by Angela Joy and Illustrated by Ekua Holmes.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
A child reflects on the meaning of being Black in this moving and powerful anthem about a people, a culture, a history, and a legacy that lives on.
Red is a rainbow color.
Green sits next to blue.
Yellow, orange, violet, indigo,
They are rainbow colors, too, but
My color is black . . .
And there’s no BLACK in rainbows.
From the wheels of a bicycle to the robe on Thurgood Marshall’s back, Black surrounds our lives. It is a color to simply describe some of our favorite things, but it also evokes a deeper sentiment about the incredible people who helped change the world and a community that continues to grow and thrive.
Stunningly illustrated by Caldecott Honoree and Coretta Scott King Award winner Ekua Holmes, Black Is a Rainbow Color is a sweeping celebration told through debut author Angela Joy’s rhythmically captivating and unforgettable words.
