Sharon Robinson, daughter of the iconic Jackie Robinson, pens a colorful and inspirational story about her family. Auntie Sharon and Grandmother BiBi make a trip home to Tanzania where they spend days sharing stories and filling family members in on happenings over time. Soon, Grandma BiBi will be celebrating her 85th birthday and a very special surprise, being planned by her seven grandchildren is in the works. The hush-hush journey is a safari in Serengeti National Park. But, things take a turn and ultimately, could mark their last days together.

The adventurous tale shares historical context dealing with slavery and ancestry. Robinson also paints a portrait that expresses the joys and pains of a family living on two different continents.
