Shining Legacy: Storypoems for the Young, So Black Heroes and Heroines Forever Will Be Sung, celebrates the past through epic, ballad, legend and saga, all accentuated with rhyme. Role models range from Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Sojourner Truth — to Malcolm X, Denmark Vesey, Toussaint L’Ouverture, Paul Robeson and Marcus Garvey.
This beautifully colored edition of Shining Legacy comes 38 years after its original 1983 black and white publication. Through Shining Legacy, Taifa provides much-needed identity, purpose and direction for children in general, and Black youth in particular.
