About the Author :

Beah E. Richards (1920-2000) was born Beulah Elizabeth Richardson in Vicksburg, Mississippi, where the number-one rule in her parents' home was, "The bottom is overcrowded so strive for the top!" She came to New York in 1950. Her first significant stage role was in 1955, playing an elderly woman in the off-Broadway play Take a Giant Step. She developed a career as a prolific actress, playwright, and published poet, receiving a Tony nomination for her role in James Baldwin's The Amen Corner, and garnering an Oscar nomination for her part as Mrs. Prentice in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. In 1988 she won an Emmy for her role on Frank's Place, and in 2000 she won an Emmy award for her role on The Practice. LisaGay Hamilton accepted the award on behalf of Ms. Richards, and delivered the Emmy to Beah in Mississippi. Ms. Richards died two weeks later.

LisaGay Hamilton wrote and directed the award-winning documentary Beah: A Black Woman Speaks, which chronicles the life of Beah Richards. Ms. Hamilton was a series regular for seven years on the television drama The Practice as Rebecca Washington. Along with Beah Richards, Ms. Hamilton appeared in the movie adaptation of Toni Morrison's novel Beloved. She is a graduate of the Juilliard Drama Division.

R. Gregory Christie won a Coretta Scott King Honor (Illustration) for his first book, The Palm of My Heart: Poetry by African American Children. Only Passing Through: The Story of Sojourner Truth, was selected as a Coretta Scott King Honor Book and a New York Times Best Illustrated Book. Yesterday I Had the Blues by Jeron Ashford Frame won the Ezra Jack Keats Award, the Claudia Lewis Award for poetry (given by Bank Street College of Education), and was a BCCB Blue Ribbon Winner. His latest book is The Lost Boys of Sudan. Visit Mr. Christie's Web site at www.gas-art.com.

From Booklist :

K-Gr. 3. An African American girl climbs a tall tree, while at ground level, a worried Miss Nettie frets, postures, admonishes, disdains, and issues orders for her to come back down. But as the poem has it, "The only way to make a bid / for a girl's equality / is to climb right up to the toppermost bough / of the very tallest tree." The poem, which appeared in A Black Woman Speaks (1974) by African American actress and writer Beah Richards, effectively uses vernacular speech to create a distinctive voice, while making a feminist point. Similarly, Christie creates a series of strong gouache paintings that define the characters through posture and gesture. Bold brush strokes create a landscape simplified to its essence, providing a backdrop in which the characters' body language speaks volumes. Though the book is classified as poetry, the brevity of the text and the clarity of the art make this a vivid picture book as well, and one that might be read aloud to older groups for discussion.
