Our Story Starts in Africa

Author: Patrice Lawrence
Illustrator: Jeanetta Gonzales
Publisher: Magic Cat

When Paloma goes to visit her family in Trinidad, she doesn't feel that she fits in. But Tante Janet has a story to tell her: An ancient story of warrior queens and talking drums, of treasures and tales that span thousands of years . . .  a story that Paloma shares in, because her story starts in Africa, too . . . 

Join Tante and her inquisitive niece as they share the story of how her family came to the Caribbean, through the dark days of colonization and slavery, to the emergence of a thriving, contemporary community of many faces, places and successes.
