Young Jabari isn’t trying to dream big. He’s just trying to live free. Scared to leave his home with the threat of an unsafe world just outside his front door, Jabari escapes to his dreams where Ruby Bridges, Claudette Colvin and other heroes of the Civil Rights Movement teach him what it means to be fearless. When he meets an impressionable six-year-old Barack Obama, will Jabari have the courage to share the lessons he learned from the past to help ensure the future? Through rap, freedom songs, hip-hop dance and humor, Jabari Dreams of Freedom is history in the dreaming. Recommended for grades 3-6.
