Praise for Hey Black Child:
A School Library Journal Top 20 Books of the Year Pick—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "This book dazzles in every way and is bound to inspire so many more viral videos of black children speaking their abundant futures into existence. All black children need to know Perkins' prideful poem, possibly by heart, because it's really that doggone good."
* "Perkins's poem has always made for a stirring recitation; new and old fans will find that Collier's images do full justice to it."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
* "Collier's characteristic watercolor-and-collage masterpieces bring joy and gravity to Perkins's inspirational poem. With a compelling rhythm that begs for recitation, the verse celebrates the power and potential of black children... A rousing celebration and call to action, this book is a great choice for every library."—School Library Journal, starred review
