The People Could Fly: Home Library Campaign

The latest addition to the Home Library Campaign Directory (341 books to date) is a favorite of mine. The People Can Fly: American Black Folktales told by Virginia Hamilton is an essential book for all households to have. You don't hear much about Black Folktales and most fairy tales and Disney movies are portrayed with various other ethnic groups. The spoken language has been a key factor in the history of our ancestors and this book continues the legacy that we have stories and they must be shared. The cover was always captivating to me as a child and I always loved the stories, rich with passion and history as it chronicled the triumphs in our legacy. It is with great pleasure to add this book to our directory and some day soon we will give this gift to a family so they can begin to love this book as much as I have.
