Ue baseball from its beginnings in the 1920s through the decline after Jackie Robin. An outstanding book with an informative and immensely readable narrative and gorgeous illustrations Kadir Nelson s We Are the Ship is a work that draws the reader in even if she like myself has little interest in baseball The story of African Americans in the sport the title comes from a uote from Rube Foster who founded the Negro National League prior to the admittance of Jackie Robinson into the Major Leagues in 1947 it is a celebration of the perseverance and independence of spirit that allowed so many athletes to continue in the face of limited opportunities and discriminatory policies It is also an enlightening examination of American history exploring how racial segregation was enacted not just in sport but in everything from hotel accommodation to military serviceI learned uite a bit from this book I d never known for instance that African Americans played baseball with everyone else until around 1887 when team owners stopped hiring them and enjoyed it far than I expected to The artwork was simply breathtaking that I did expect with Kadir Nelson s typically brilliant use of light and his expressive figures Somehow his paintings just seem to shine There were some references to chasing girls and a comment about Latin women that I could have lived without but otherwise I appreciated everything about We Are the Ship It s text heavy than a standard picture book so I think it is better suited to upper elementary school and middle school readers All in all a wonderful book one I would recommend to young readers interested in baseball or American history and to fans of the authorartist
