Description
A powerful and thought-provoking Civil Rights era memoir from one of America's most celebrated poets. Looking back on her childhood in the 1950s, Newbery Honor winner and National Book Award finalist Marilyn Nelson tells the story of her development as an artist and young woman through fifty eye-opening poems. Readers are given an intimate portrait of her growing self-awareness and artistic inspiration along with a larger view of the world around her: racial tensions, the Cold War era, and the first stirrings of the feminist movement. A first-person account of African-American history, this is a book to study, discuss, and treasure.

display_description These fifty autobiographical poems (all unrhymed sonnets) cover the decade of the fifties, from 1950, when award-winning author Marilyn Nelson was just four years old, to 1960, when she turned fourteen. Marilyn addresses a variety of topics: military family life and the rootlessness of frequent transfers; the Red Scare era under the shadow of the Atom Bomb; racial tensions and the rise of the Civil Rights Movement; the first stirrings of women s empowerment; and through it all, Marilyn s development as an aspiring poet.
