A young black girl lifts her baby hands up to greet the sun, reaches her hands up for a book on a high shelf, and raises her hands up in praise at a church service. She stretches her hands up high like a plane's wings and whizzes down a hill so fast on her bike with her hands way up. As she grows, she lives through everyday moments of joy, love, and sadness.
And when she gets a little older, she joins together with her family and her community in a protest march, where they lift their hands up together in resistance and strength.
Recommended for readers aged 4-8
