About FLOYD COOPER:
"Floyd Cooper, a celebrated children’s book illustrator who explored the African American experience in stories rooted in history, died on July 15, 2021, but his memory and legacy live on.  Over 30 years, he illustrated children’s stories that not only carried his earthy and golden pastel impressions of Black life, but that also strived to recount chapters of African American history that he felt weren’t taught enough in classrooms. He saw humanity in every subject, in people of all ages." ~ Quote via "Every Child A Reader" at https://everychildareader.net/cbw/floyd-cooper-day-2022/
