Let it be this one: Kadir Nelson’s HEART AND SOUL: THE STORY OF AMERICA AND AFRICAN AMERICANS. Even the title is perfect. Here’s a link to his brief video — fascinating — about the book. It’s an award winning book with good reason. Every home, school, and library should have a copy to read all year round. My next post: more suggested reads because, of course, as stunning as this book is, one book is not enough.
