Hamilton, Virginia, (1985, original; 2004 illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon). The People Could Fly. Illustrated version published by A. A. Knopf/Random House, New York. Unpaginated. From Editor’s Note -- “The People Could Fly” was first published in 1985 by Alfred A. Knopf as one of the 24 tales in Virginia Hamilton’s The People Could Fly: American Black Folktales. This tale might have been told as soon as the slaves came to America, or when a fresh bunch of “Africans” were brought directly to the plantation. From front jacket fly leaf - Long ago in Africa, it is said, some of the people knew magic that enabled them to fly. But when they were brought to America as slaves, they forgot the magic. All but one old man. When he could tolerate no longer the suffering [including hunger] of his people, he whispered the magic words and, one by one and then in flocks, the slaves rose up and flew to freedom. From back jacket fly leaf – Virginia Hamilton was the first black author to be awarded the Newbery Medal in 1975 for M. C. Higgins, the Great (which also won the National Book Award) and the first author of children’s books to receive a MacArthur “genius” grant. Her distinctive writing style perfectly bridges the oral tradition and more formal literary styles.
