Rosa sat so Martin could march. Martin marched so Barack could run.

This unique picture book is part history, part poetry, and entirely inspirational. Our Children Can Soar: A Celebration of Rosa, Barack, and the Pioneers of Change takes the reader step by simple step through the cumulative story of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, showing how select pioneers' achievements led up to the landmark moment when we elected our first black president. Each historical figure is rendered by a different award-winning illustrator, highlighting the singular and vibrant contribution that each figure made.
