Using poetry laced with intergenerational concepts and brilliant collage, this lyrical journey teaches children the 10 core principles set forth in the bestselling book The Covenant with Black America. The book effortlessly pieces together a view of a better tomorrow that supports community-driven solutions to the Covenant's foundational agenda items. It includes specific activities to further civic development and complete the development of the soul and consciousness of children from all races and backgrounds.


“If the Covenant is going to have long-term meaning, we cannot omit our children from the bigger picture of changing the landscape for their future. Share this book with them. Let it be the first step that we encourage our children to take toward accountability for designing their dreams and building a better tomorrow.”  —Tavis Smiley, author, The Covenant with Black America
