This book is the illustrated version of the 2018 commencement speech that Jesmyn Ward delivered. She discusses the value of working hard and the importance of respect. Jesmyn spoke about the challenges her family overcame. She describes how as a child growing up surrounded by those challenges she was affected. I thought the speech was an inspirational read and thought the illustrations were quirky. However, I felt while this was a good read, I didn't think it needed to be a book. Perhaps, maybe a gift for a graduate or someone who needs extra motivation.
