Have you ever been graced with the Oakland sun? Well, Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern don’t feel much of the warmth when they arrive at their mother’s home. A self-proclaimed poet, Cecile, who never wanted much to do with motherhood, sends them to the People’s Center, a Black Panther Day camp. There they learn a lot more about themselves, their mother, and about the good deeds the party does for their community. Set in the 1960s, during the Civil Rights era, you will discover complicated family history and ways that the Black Panther Party united it’s community while teaching young and old to stand up for their rights. Plus, the sisters will keep you flipping each page, with their wit, humor, and sisterly banter.
