About the Author
Faith Ringgold was born in Harlem in 1930. She received a degree in art education from the City College of New York and was an art teacher long before she became a professional artist. She is best known for her painted story quilts, some of which hang in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City. Tar Beach, Ringgold's first book for children, won the Coretta Scott King Award for illustration and was named a Caldecott honor Book. Her other picture books include Aunt Harriet's Underground Railroad in the Sky, My Dream of Martin Luther King, Cassie's Word Quilt, and We Came to America.
