Description

Featured in the final episode of Reading Rainbow, Show Way is a beautifully written and illustrated account of seven generations of an African-American, covering experiences of slavery, escape, emancipation, protest marches, storytelling, motherhood, and more. The quilt theme featured here is found throughout the text, and the combination of the quotes from the ancestry of African-Americans in history with the ongoing effort of all ages in protest for the future is especially compelling.
