Editorial Reviews

Review

Starred Review, Booklist, June 2012:
“With a text that stylistically sings yet is packed with information, the book introduces a woman who, though part of the Harlem Renaissance, is not well remembered by history.”

About the Author

RENÉE WATSON has worked as a teaching-artist for more than 10 years, teaching creative writing and theater to elementary, middle, and high school students. She also uses writing and drama therapy to work with youth and adults. Renée lives in New York, NY.

More About the Author


Renée Watson is the author of the children's picture book, Harlem's Little Blackbird: The Story of Florence Mills and A Place Where Hurricanes Happen. Her middle grade novel, What Momma Left Me debuted as the New Voice for 2010 in middle grade fiction by The Independent Children's Booksellers Association.

Renée's one woman show, Roses are Red, Women are Blue, debuted at New York City's Lincoln Center at a showcase for emerging artists. Her poetry and articles have been published in Rethinking Schools and Oregon English Journal. When Renée is not writing and performing, she is teaching. Renée has worked in public schools and community organizations as an artist in residence for several years, teaching poetry, fiction, and theater in Oregon, Louisiana, and New York City.

She has facilitated poetry and theatre workshops with young girls coping with sexual and physical abuse, children who have witnessed violence, children coping with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and children who relocated to New York City after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Renée graduated from The New School, where she studied Creative Writing and earned a certificate in Drama Therapy.

"A beautifully illustrated children's book about Florence Mills and her choice to stay in Harlem and sing. We read it to ourselves, to our grandchildren and highly recommended it to our customers and television viewers."

Format: Hardcover
Renee Watson and Christian Robinson bring Florence Mills to life, pairing mixed media with prose. From her childhood in Washington, DC and New York City, Florence takes the stage from Harlem to London and back again, becoming known as Harlem's Little Blackbird for her sweet singing voice. Children ages 5-8 will be drawn to the mixed media images, as well as this singer's artistic life.
