Ellington Was Not a Street by Ntozake Shange

Ellington Was Not a Street is based on the poem Mood Indigo by Ntozake Shange. This winner of the 2005 Corretta Scott King Illustrator award takes me back to my home Harlem, New York. A beautifully illustrated tribute to great men like Duke Ellington, Paul Robeson and W.E.B. Dubois who once walked the streets that now bear their names.
