Summary

Sharon Robinson, daughter of baseball great Jackie Robinson, shares an inspirational story about her family in Tanzania. AG Ford is a NEW YORK TIMES best-selling artist and winner of the NAACP Award.

Auntie Sharon and Grandmother Bibi have come to visit the family in Tanzania--all the way from America! Soon it will be Bibi's 85th birthday, and her seven grandchildren are planning a big surprise!

After days together at home telling stories and filling gaps from the years spent apart, it's time to embark on their secret journey--a safari in Serengeti National Park. But too soon, it's their last day together. And in a bittersweet moment, at the ruins of an old slave port, Bibi's African-born grandchildren come to learn what happened to their ancestors who went by slave ship to America.

Sharon Robinson eloquently portrays the joys and pains of a family living on two continents. And she gives African-American history a powerful new perspective when seen through the eyes of modern-day African children. AG Ford's luminous oil paintings reflect all the warmth and spirit of this moving story.
