Bibliothekseinband, [EAN: 9780679994855], Knopf Books for Young Readers, Knopf Books for Young Readers, Book, [PU: Knopf Books for Young Readers], 2001-12-26, Knopf Books for Young Readers, Spurned, burned, driven underground, the Black Church in America has long managed to thrive in spite of oppression and prejudice. In Tonya Bolden's rhythmic ode to this wellspring of compassion, creativity, and support, the church comes to life as a woman: "She has done so much / to make her people strong, / to keep so many alive in their bodies, in their souls. / Multitudes she has mothered / in times of dense distress." From slavery times, when the church was forced to be invisible, "her roof nightsky"; through the times when African Americans were "go-to-the-back-door people," and Martin Luther King Jr., Aretha Franklin, James Baldwin, and Leontyne Price were growing up in the church community; to the present; Bolden's passionate words embrace the gathering place of countless hopeful worshippers. Striking, angular, acrylic and colored pencil artwork by two-time Coretta Scott King Honor Award winner R. Gregory Christie (Only Passing Through) beautifully captures the fervor, joy, and sorrow of the churchgoers. Detailed notes at the end of the book provide historical context.
