Despite a few poignant personal stories ("Tell It In Your Own Way" by Roy Boney; "You Can Change The World" by Bernette G. Ford; "Dark Brown Skin Is Beautiful" by Eleanora E. Tate) the book is a little heavy handed to appeal to this adult, and perhaps to children as well. The editors were inspired by the US 2016 election to create a collection "To inspire you, motivate you, offer you love and hope, and encourage you to help make a difference."

Particular keepers from the collection are "A Talkin-To" by Jason Reynolds, the last entry in the collection; the sweet and simple "I Wonder" by Margarita Engle; and "a day of small things" by Tonya Bolden. I'm inspired to look at other offerings by these three authors.
