Winner of the 2020 Caldecott Medal A 2020 Newbery Honor Book Winner of the 2020 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award The Newbery Award-winning author of THE CROSSOVER pens an ode to black American triumph and tribulation, with art from a two-time Caldecott Honoree. Originally performed for ESPN's The Undefeated, this poem is a love letter to black life in the United States. It highlights the unspeakable trauma of slavery, the faith and fire of the civil rights movement, and the grit, passion, and perseverance of some of the world's greatest heroes. The text is also peppered with references to the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks, and others, offering deeper insights into the accomplishments of the past, while bringing stark attention to the endurance and spirit of those surviving and thriving in the present. Robust back matter at the end provides valuable historical context and additional detail for those wishing to learn more.  … (mais)

Strikingly illustrated poem celebrating the resilience of Black Americans. The portraits of famous figures are stunning.
Nelson's stylized rendition of the inhumane conditions on slave ships may be hard to talk about with the youngest readers. That is the challenging truth of history: it's hard to talk about, whether your ancestors were the ones suffering at the time or the ones making someone else suffer. To me it seems like a great starting point for learning for grades 2 and up. ( )

This Poem is a unique and well written poem that highlights black Americans and their achievements all throughout history. You can truly tell that the author and illustrator were passionate about putting this piece of literary work together. There is great feeling in the words used as well as power in the illustrations. This book, while entertaining, also provides a great chance to educate people. The historical figures highlighted all have their own stories and backgrounds, and the situations portrayed in the poem are important pieces of history. There are great teaching points to show that a wicked history doesn't have to be repeated, and when we respect everyone we can accomplish so much more. This book recognizes so many great people and achievements that have not gotten enough recognition in the past due to hatred in some peoples' hearts. The vibrant, beautiful illustrations also capture the reader's attention, and I think that they are also very important elements to this literary work. ( )

Kwame Alexander's book, The Undefeated is a beautifully written celebration of the perseverance of blacks throughout history and current times. This book evokes emotion. The poetry is powerful and joy to read. The illustrations, by Kadir Nelson, impactful. I appreciate the listing of iconic historical figures and events that Alexander presents throughout the book in the reference pages in the end. This book is not only a celebration of perseverance, but a reminder of those who did not survive and were taken by hatred. The introductory message striking…”This is a love letter to America. To black America…” and the afterward that Mr. Alexander writes provides insight to his process regarding the book. This is a book that can be used at any grade level, kindergarten through high school, with differing objectives. This is a book I will read every year to my students as we need to hear this message repeatedly. ( )

This book is an illustrated poem, written by poet/author Kwame Alexander and illustrated by the talented Kadir Nelson. It is an ode to black Americans through history: both the "dreamers" and the "doers," who have made a difference, despite the many injustices endured and challenges faced. I was disappointed in myself for not recognizing more of these important contributors to social change and justice, and would have liked the people identified on each page (since the book was oversized anyway. In fact, I would have liked the entire profiles in the afterword on each page, but this would be a detraction from the poem itself and its primary audience (children.) Happy to have learned some history too. ( )

children's picture book in verse; black history/American history
powerful combination of poetry and illustrations that should speak to everyone; this deserves ALL THE STARS. Backmatter includes thoughtful, if sometimes brief, descriptions of the stories contained in the illustrations of each spread. ( )
