Stunning verse and bold, textured illustrations capture the vivacity and history of Harlem.


Esteemed author Walter Dean Myers teams up with his son to create a tribute to the Harlem that became a haven for African American art and culture in the 1920s and '30s. The words and pictures paint a cityscape filled with writers, musicians, and regular folk living out their dreams in a city that connected modern African Americans with their ancestral home. Readers will almost hear the jazz playing and the subway train rumbling through every gorgeously illustrated page.

A fantastic study in poetry and description, with images that are as jazzy as the text, this book is a brilliant addition to any classroom or home library.
