With dynamic narration and exquisite emotional resonance, Acevedo’s poetic performance celebrates the multidimensional subject of Black hair in the context of the author’s Dominican identity.
The readalong is taken to new heights as James "D-Train" Williams and Vaneese Thomas perform the work of Walter Dean Myers. Original music accompanies each poem's performance, resulting in a rhythmic representation of mood and tone. Separate tracks for the selections and lively inclusion of a glossary and timeline create a dynamic audiobook; part poetry, part nonfiction, and wholly authentic.
