Special Preschool Storytime with Author Desiree Cooper

Special Preschool Storytime with Author Desiree Cooper

Nothing Special is a buddy story that spans generations. But it's also a love letter to the
black family connections that survived the Great Migration. Between 1910 and 1970,
more than six million African Americans left the Jim Crow South, but they never forgot
the culture, the land, and the family they left behind. In the decades since, it’s been a
summer ritual for many Black families to reverse the journey and return south for a
nostalgic visit to their homeplaces. Through the lens of Nothing Special, Cooper
celebrates the enduring connection between the generations who stayed in the South,
and the millions of emigrants for whom it will always be home.
