Born to parents who survived Middle Passage slavery and the Trail of Tears, Magnolia Flower is a girl with a vibrant spirit. Not to be deterred by rigid ways of the world, she longs to connect with others, who too long for freedom. She finds this in a young man of letters who her father disapproves of. In her quest to be free, Magnolia must make a choice and set off on a journey that will prove just how brave one can be when leading with one’s heart.

The acclaimed writer of several American classics, Zora Neale Hurston, wrote this stirring folktale in her collection Hitting a Straight Lick with a Crooked Stick, brimming with poetic prose, culture and history, and first published in 1925. Tenderly retold by #1 New York Times bestselling and National Book Award–winning author, Ibram X. Kendi, Magnolia Flower tells the story of a transformative and radical devotion between generations of Indigenous and Black people in America. With breathtaking illustrations by Loveis Wise, this picture book reminds us that there is no force strong enough to stop love.
