 In her powerful fourth book in the Children of Conflict series, Laurel Holliday explores how far we have come as she presents thirty-eight African-Americans who share their experiences as “Children of the Dream.” “”I was brought up with white Barbie dolls of impossible proportions and long silky blonde hair — neither of which I possessed. As a child I believed what I was taught, and I wasn’t taught to love myself for who I am — an African-American.” — Charisse Nesbit” The unforgettable people we hear from are young and old, rich and poor, from inner cities, suburbia, and rural America. In chronicles that are highly personal, funny, tragic, and triumphant, the contributors tell us what it is like coming of age stigmatized by the color of their skin, yet proud of their heritage and culture. Their voices, their courage, their resilience — and their understanding — offer hope for us all.
