‘Christmas Gif’

Compiled by: Charlemac Hill Rollins, Illustrations by: Ashley Bryan


When Charlemae Hill Rollins’s Christmas Gif was published in 1963, it was greeted with much fanfare and celebration.  Here, at long last, was the only collection of Christmas poems, stories, songs, and plantation recipes written by and about African-Americans.  Ms. Rollins, an internationally renowned children’s librarian and advocate, was often asked by parents, teachers, and children for African American Christmas stories and poems.  Born of a desire to share literature of the black experience with children, this book is just as important for families today as it was thirty years ago.
