Last summer–as in, the summer of 2017–I excitedly shared news of a book I was working on:
How the months roll by! The book is now in page proofs, with a new title: This Promise of Change: One Girl’s Story in the Fight for School Equality. And it has a gorgeous cover with artwork by the talented, award-winning Ekua Holmes. I love it so much I am setting it out here as big as I can make it. At the front of the line of teenagers pictured here is co-author Jo Ann Allen Boyce. Her eleven classmates (together they were known as the Clinton 12) are there, too; notably, her best friend from high school–and still her friend today, now that they are in their 70s–Gail Ann Upton Epps, in the pink sleeveless blouse, wearing glasses. I can’t wait for you to meet them on the page when the book is released on January 8, 2019.
