Born to parents who were both former slaves, Florence Mills knew at an early age that she loved to sing, and that her sweet, bird-like voice, resonated with those who heard her. Performing catapulted her all the way to the stages of s Broadway where she inspired everyone from songwriters to playwrights.
Yet with all her success, she knew firsthand how prejudice shaped her world and the world of those around her. As a result, Florence chose to support and promote works by her fellow black performers while heralding a call for their civil rights. She sees the passage of the Fifteenth Amendment and her great-grandfather voting for the first time. She sees her parents trying to register to vote. And she sees herself marching in a protest from Selma to Montgomery.

With proper reverence, Weatherford and Nelson do justice to the woman who, long ago, earned over and over the name Moses. As a seamstress in the Big House, Clara dreams of a reunion with her Momma, who lives on another plantation—and even of running away to freedom. Then she overhears two slaves talking about the Underground Railroad. In a flash of inspiration, Clara sees how she can use the cloth in her scrap bag to make a map of the land—a freedom quilt—that no master will ever suspect.
