YOU are your ancestors’ wildest dreams. How will you express YOUR greatness? This electrifying anthem to Black boy joy and pride is perfect for fans of I Am Every Good Thing, Little Legends, and All Because You Matter.

I am fly.

From my crown

down to the kicks

on my feet...

I AM my ancestors' wildest dreams.

In a story that sizzles and soars, a young child discovers his place in a distinguished lineage. As he meets ten exceptional Black men — historical and contemporary heroes who have paved the way for his own future success — he internalizes and asserts their greatness. Just like them, he can reach his dreams. And just like him, you have within you big potential.
