Our Daddy
by Rene J. Guity

Paperback: 22
Available at: www.pickupthepace.co or Amazon
Essentially the book is basically a compilation of things that I tell my girls on a regular basis. I have two daughters who are now 12 and 8.  I found myself saying certain things over and over like any other parent out there and even started to take those messages to my kids at the school where I worked.  So I thought to myself “Why not just write them down?”

Ellen’s Broom
by Kelly Starling Lyons

Ellen always knew the broom resting above the hearth was special. But after it’s announced in church that the marriages of former slaves will be registered, she hears more about why it matters so much. For her mama and papa, who could be sold away at a master’s whim and whose union had no legal protection, jumping the broom was a way to show their commitment to being husband and wife. Now, as the whole family travels to the courthouse dressed in their best, Ellen carries the broom with them. With love, ingenuity and pride, she finds a way to celebrate her parents’ right to be legally married and remember their past.
