Renowned artist, storyteller and writer Ashley Bryan introduces his new book: INFINITE HOPE: A BLACK ARTIST’S JOURNEY FROM WORLD WAR II TO PEACE. 

Ashley Bryan is the first African-American creator ever to both write and illustrate a book for children. He’s a Newberry Medal honoree and has received countless Coretta Scott King awards and honors.


INFINITE HOPE is an autobiography filled with sketches and letters of Ashley’s time in the war. His belief in the power of art and the lengths he went to keep making art during the war are inspiring.
