    by Elizabeth Acevedo (Author), Andrea Pippins (Illustrator)

    They tell me to “fix” my hair.

    And by fix, they mean straighten, they mean whiten;

    but how do you fix this shipwrecked

    history of hair?

    In her most famous spoken-word poem, author of the Pura Belpré-winning novel-in-verse The Poet X Elizabeth Acevedo embraces all the complexities of Black hair and Afro-Latinidad—the history, pain, pride, and powerful love of that inheritance.

    Paired with full-color illustrations by artist Andrea Pippins in a format that will appeal to fans of Mahogany L. Browne’s Black Girl Magic or Jason Reynolds’s For Everyone, this poem can now be read in a vibrant package, making it the ideal gift, treasure, or inspiration for readers of any age.
