American Struggle: Teens Respond to Jacob Lawrence

Chul R. Kim

"A fresh lens for viewing Jacob Lawrence's art: through the perspective of teens of color. Created in cooperation with seven art institutions, including the Peabody Essex Museum and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, this anthology features teen-authored prose and poetry responses to Lawrence's 30-panel visual narrative, Struggle: From the History of the American People. Some pieces articulate what teens see in the art; in others, the art inspires reflections about their lives. All address the difficulties of growing up minoritized in the U.S....The volume includes all of the Struggle paintings, their original captions, and a brief commentary on each. An invaluable resource amplifying marginalized teen voices and conveying Lawrence's relevance to their own lives.", Kirkus Reviews
