Just Keep Singing

When Grandmama Sings by Margaree King Mitchell, illustrated by James E. Ransome is a dazzling delight.  The watercolor illustrations depict the fictional story of Ivory Belle Coles as she toured the South and sang.  The story touches on segregation and Jim Crow laws but fully captures the spirit of never give up.  Check out James E. Ransome's Website.
