Remember the Bridge: Poems of a People by Carole Boston Weatherford

Striking archival engravings and photographs accompany these twenty-nine original poems, taking the reader on a journey of over 400 years on the African American road to freedom. Weatherford's poems, together with haunting black-and-white images, create portraits of captured Africans, slaves on the auction block, heroes of freedom, craftsmen and storytellers. These are the men and women, ordinary folks as well as legendary heroes, who made their people proud and strong and built the bridge to a promising future. Readers of all ages and cultures will treasure Remember the Bridge.
