Am I a Color Too?
A young interracial boy wonders why people are labeled by the color of their skin. Seeing that people dream, feel, sing, smile and dance, regardless of their color, he asks, "Am I a color, too? When I think of all the people, All those faces in my sight, If people are really colors, There should be more than black and white." Gerald Purnell's captivating art brings this simple poem vibrantly to life.
