That Flag is an affecting picture book that challenges the meaning behind the still-waving Confederate flag through the friendship of two young girls who live across the street from one another.
Bianca is Keira’s best friend. At school, they are inseparable. But Keira questions their friendship when she learns more about the history of the Confederate flag hanging from Bianca’s front porch. Will the two friends be able to overlook their distinct understandings of the flag? Or will they have to reckon with the flag’s impact on both yesterday and today?
In That Flag, Tameka Fryer Brown and #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator Nikkolas Smith graciously tackle the issues of racism, the value of friendship, and the importance of understanding history so that we move forward together in a thought-provoking, stirring, yet ultimately tender tale.
Backmatter on the history of the Confederate flag and a note from the creators are included.
