Award-winning illustrator, Kadir Nelson is my Featured “Author of Color” today. In his book, Change he portrays simple sketches that take one back to the days when life was simple. In almost a child-like vision, we’re able to see this historic event of Barack Obama’s ascension into office in terms anyone can understand.
In a small formatted book, this book is a wonderful addition to anyone who’s collecting Barack Obama memorabilia.
A two-time recipient of the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award and the Caldecott Honor, Kadir Nelson is one to watch and likely will end his career with a body of work that will be talked about for years to come.
