Cotton fields, dusty roads, and the hot Texas sun. One little girl's world looked the same as it always did when she went to sleep. But she wakes to find that everything is different now. Coretta Scott King Award winners Angela Johnson and E. B. Lewis tell the story of the first Juneteenth, the day freedom finally came to the last slaves in the South. This stunning picture book includes notes from the author and illustrator, a timeline of important dates, and a glossary of relevant terms.
