Black History Month Pick

Bushra Junaid’s beautifully written and illustrated middle-grade book The Possible Lives of W.H., Sailor (Running the Goat) marries poetic narrative with real-life history. W.H. is an unknown sailor, the remains of whom were discovered in the late 1980s in Labrador. Archaeologists were able to determine that the remains were male, and of African heritage; Junaid’s book imagines in words and pictures what the rest of his life might have been with tenderness, while also shining a light on African experiences in North America during W.H.’s lifetime.
