Seeing into Tomorrow: Haiku by Richard Wright, illustrated by Nina Crews
From watching a sunset to finding a beetle, Richard Wright’s haiku puts everyday moments into focus. Paired with the photo-collage artwork of Nina Crews, Seeing into Tomorrow celebrates the lives of contemporary African American boys.

For a little context, you might want to borrow Richard Wright and the Library Card (based on a scene in his autobiography, Black Boy) or a biography. You can visit the database Something About the Author for more information about Nina Crews, who is the daughter of Donald Crews and Ann Jonas.
