Step on Board: Sculpting a Memorial to Harriet Tubman
Illustrated by Ekua Holmes
The daughter of a sculptor watches her mother puzzle through designing a work of art that honors the life of an American heroine.
Based on my experience watching my mother, the late sculptor Fern Cunningham-Terry, sculpt Boston’s first memorial to a woman on city property, this picture book combines the stories of Harriet Tubman’s life, an artist’s journey, and a child’s inspiration.
This nonfiction picture book is a lyrical introduction to the presence, resistance, resilience and influence of Muslims of African descent in the Americas.
