“A book that creatively glances backward and forward, offering hope for an America that wants to be post-racial but isn’t yet.”—Kirkus Reviews What does life look like for a black kid and a white kid who are best friends in the decade after the Civil Rights Act? It looks like friendship! A Gift from Greensboro is at once an elegy, a celebration of the magic of childhood friendship, and a meditation on growing up in the wake of the sit-ins that ushered in the Civil Rights Movement. Paired with intricate, layered illustrations, this poem recognizes that true friendship knows no boundaries and that love drives positive change. Style: Sturdy matte softcover, French flaps
