Reviews

"With spare text and minimalist illustrations, Weatherford and Christie pay fine tribue to the tradition of artistic expression that bloomed during the Harlem Renaissance. Each page turn reveals a luminary of the scene with just a single line of text that gracefully sums up his or her contribution." Booklist, February 1, 2014
"Weatherford's words celebrate the people and neighborhood where black culture blossomed in the '20s and '30s. . .Christie's signature paintings--bold and simple--capture the excitement and energy of the place and time." School Library Journal, February 1, 2014
"Christie's handsome paintings of Harlem's Sugar Hill neighborhood bring warmth to Weatherford's catalogue of the African-American artists who lived there in the 1920s and '30s. . . This portrait of a community of color that cherished its artists will inspire readers." Publishers Weekly, November 22, 2013
"Weatherford's poetic, swinging textual rhythms meet Christie's artistic razzmatazz to create one hot picture book. . .A fine tribute to the local color of Sugar Hill, who have made America a better and more interesting country for almost a century." Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, January 15, 2014
