What happened when a former slave took beat-up old instruments and gave them
to a bunch of orphans? A great American art form was born. In 1891, Reverend Daniel Joseph Jenkins opened
his orphanage in Charleston, South Carolina. He soon had hundreds of children and needed a way to support them. Jenkins asked townspeople to donate old band instruments and found teachers to show the kids how to play. The Jenkins Orphanage Band caused a sensation on the streets of Charleston. People called the
band's style of music "rag." Illustrated by Coretta Scott King award-winner
Colin Bootman (Almost to Freedom, 2003), Hey
Charleston! brings this fascinating moment of
