Summary
In Detroit in 1945, eleven-year-old Betty's house doesn't quite feel like home. She believes her mother loves her, but can't shake the feeling her mother doesn't want her. Church helps those worries fade for a little while. Speeches from activists stir African Americans in Betty's congregation to stand up for their rights despite widespread racial prejudice. But when a terrible crime occurs in their community, Betty realizes the right way forward isn't always clear. Before Betty Shabazz met Malcolm X and became a mother, educator, and world-renowned activist, she was simply a girl. In this book inspired by real life and fictionalized through collaboration with novelist Renee Watson, Ilyasah Shabazz illuminates four important years in her mother's childhood. Here is an inspiring portrait of a girl overcoming challenges of self-acceptance and belonging that will resonate with young listeners today as they put down their own roots in the fight for equality
