Inheritance: A Visual Poem

"They tell me to 'fix' my hair.
And by 'fix,' they mean straighten, they mean whiten;
but how do you fix this shipwrecked
history of hair?"

In her most famous spoken-word poem, author of the Pura Belpré-winning novel-in-verse, THE POET X, Elizabeth Acevedo embraces all the complexities of Black hair and Afro-Latinidad -- the history, pain, pride, and powerful love of that inheritance.

Paired with full-color illustrations by artist Andrea Pippins in a format that will appeal to fans of Mahogany L. Browne's BLACK GIRL MAGIC or Jason Reynold's FOR EVERYONE, this poem can now be read in a vibrant package, making it the ideal gift, treasure, or inspiration for readers of any age.
