This book reminds me of high school. In choir we sang this song for one of our festival pieces. When I saw this book, I had to see what the illustrator with it.The authors note says something about the Gulf Coast and the New Orleans area after Katrina and the words of this song spoke louder to Bryan Collier, the illustrator. He also uses water a lot in this book because of Katrina. It made me think about this song in a different way completely. A way that helped me connect it to the recent past rather than a further past I thought about back in high school. ( )

A marvelous art book cum children's book, this has the words to the "Negro National Anthem" with linocut prints by Catlett on opposing pages. The music is from the 20s, the art from the 40s, and the production from the 90s, all of the highest order. ( )
