Sing a Song: How "Lift Every Voice and Sing" Inspired Generations Reviews

  • Sarah
    It's rare that a picture book gives me goosebumps, but this one did. Surely this will receive some Coretta Scott King award love?!?I didn't know the history behind "Lift Every Voice and Sing," but I loved how its history is told through the eyes of one African-American family who started singing it ...

  • Abby Johnson
    A beautiful book about the power of a song, often referred to as the Black national anthem, this book is also about the power of tradition and how culture gets passed down from generation to generation. Rich paintings illustrate generations of an African American family singing the song, passing dow...
