A timely and beautiful look at America’s rich history of immigration  and diversity, from acclaimed artist Faith Ringgold, the Coretta Scott  King and Caldecot Honor winning creator of Tar Beach.

Vividly expressed in Faith Ringgold’s sumptuous colors and patterns, We Came to America  is an ode to every American who came before us, and a tribute to each  child who will carry its proud message of diversity into our nation’s  future.

America is a country rich in diversity -- From the  Native Americans who first called this land their home, to the millions  of people who have flocked to its shores ever since. Some of our  ancestors were driven by dreams and hope. Others came in chains, or were  escaping poverty or persecution. No matter what brought them here, each  person embodied a unique gift—their art and music, their determination  and grit, their stories and their culture. And together they forever  shaped the country we all call home.
