In Our Own Worlds Bundle
Through poem, story, and song, Brooks, Clifton, and Jones remind us how the act of building a Black childhood literary canon requires more than just Black faces in print. It is to think of Black childhood with care, to bring our inherent creative genius to the fore so that we may carry them forward–building new worlds together.
This bundle includes:
- Bronzeville Boys and Girls by Gwendolyn Brooks
- Step It Down: Games, Plays, Songs, and Stories from the Afro-American Heritage by Bessie Jones
- The Boy Who Didn't Believe in Spring by Lucille Clifton
