I Love My People

  • By Kim Singleton
$12.29
($15.99)
Product Description

Say it with her now: "I love my people!"

In rhythmic prowess, Kim Singleton recounts the beauty and legacy of Black people who are "too many to name, from the corners of obscurity, to the highest of fame."

I Love My People is a poetic tribute to African American history-makers and culture-shakers, complete with nostalgic photography and vibrant, playful illustration. In the vein of Gill Scott-Heron's poetry of the 1970s, author Kim Singleton invites us into call-and-response and brings a refreshing cadence to the page that captures every decade of Black joy in all its resilient, diverse, and excellent splendor.

"We were told that our bodies weren't built for this art. Rhythmic movement we mastered flowing straight from the heart."

Singleton shines a light on virtually every facet of Black community life, and unapologetically declares her people good--from the street corner to the White House and everything in between.

"In 1827, Freedom's Journal was born. Black content, Black operated, Black staff, Black owned."

By the end, you'll be chanting Singleton's anthem, too: "I LOVE MY PEOPLE!"
