summary:  The story follows the women in Woodson's family tree, from the women who lived many generations ago through slavery and the Civil War, to the women who experienced emancipation and early freedom, right up to the woman who lived through the Civil Rights movement and raised the woman who wrote this book. Together, it makes for a moving story that's both tragic and inspirational. Written by Jacqueline Woodson; illustrated by Hudson Talbott
