Summary
Poems inspired by a 1955 family photo of Mrs. Nelson, a school teacher, and her 2nd grade elementary class. Mrs. Nelson was the only person of color in the photo with 20 white children. Twenty poets each "claimed" a child in the photo, and wrote one or two poems in the voice of the child, with perspectives about Mrs. Nelson and their own lives on a Salina, Kansas Air Force base
