People Could Fly, The This picture book tribute to the memory of Virginia Hamilton provides stunning artwork to one of her most powerful re-tellings of a black folktale. The deceptively simple story of how some enslaved Africans brought with them the secret of how to fly is imbued with mythic power and poignancy to convey the unquenchable thirst for freedom that resulted in 'flight' - both real and metaphoric. The pictures are haunting and magical, doing full justice to this inspirational tale.
