We could fly

Rhiannon Giddens ; illustrated by Briana Mukodiri Uchendu
Book - 2023

"As a mother and daughter watch a bird take flight, the young girl feels a trembling in her arms and a lightness in her feet. Her mama shares that once, long ago, their ancestors actually could fly. Every night they would slip away and soar through the skies, searching for safety, looking for the promised land. Mama feels in her bones that her daughter is meant to follow those old ways, like her grandmother before her. So Mama grabs hold of her hand, and together they join the freedom journey that was started long ago. With exquisite illustrations by Briana Mukodiri Uchendu, Rhiannon Giddens's We Could Fly weaves strands of Black American folklore and spiritual tradition into a shimmering, lyrical celebration of the enduring power of love and resilience to sustain and uplift." --
