Grammy Award-winner Rhiannon Giddens celebrates Black history and culture in her unflinching, uplifting and gorgeously illustrated picture book debut.
Acclaimed musician, Rhiannon Giddens, has long used her art to mine America's musical past and manifest its future, passionately recovering lost voices and reconstructing a nation's musical heritage. Build a House tells the moving story of a people who would not be moved and the music that sustained them.
Steeped in sorrow and joy, resilience and resolve, turmoil and transcendence, this dramatic debut offers a proud view of history and a vital message: honour your heritage, express your truth and let your voice soar, even, or perhaps especially, when your heart is heaviest.
