StoryWalk: "Black is a Rainbow Color" by Angela Joy - Lussier Family Heritage Center

Come out the Lussier Family Heritage Center prairie trails for a self-guided StoryWalk® featuring Black is a Rainbow Color by Angela Joy. The book starts just past the Prairie Learning Center sign (behind the Pollinator Garden). A child reflects on the meaning of being Black in this moving and powerful anthem about a people, a culture, a history, and a legacy that lives on.

Red is a rainbow color.
Green sits next to blue.
Yellow, orange, violet, indigo,
They are rainbow colors, too, but

My color is black . . .
And there’s no BLACK in rainbows.


From the wheels of a bicycle to the robe on Thurgood Marshall's back, Black surrounds our lives. It is a color to simply describe some of our favorite things, but it also evokes a deeper sentiment about the incredible people who helped change the world and a community that continues to grow and thrive.

Stunningly illustrated by Caldecott Honoree and Coretta Scott King Award winner Ekua Holmes, Black Is a Rainbow Color is a sweeping celebration told through debut author Angela Joy’s rhythmically captivating and unforgettable words.

Note: Due to COVID-19 the Lussier Family Heritage Center bathroom facilities are closed. A porta-let is available for use near the campground.

Grow Native Plants for Schools and Community Projects - Virtual Training Workshop

Four years ago, our Department started a Plant Dane: Free Plants program so that we could provide free plants to groups trying to install rain gardens and natural areas in their community. Since then, we have distributed over 15,000 native plants to over 86 different local groups.

Many of the plants for this program are grown by volunteers that want to make an impact in their community. This workshop will train a new cohort of volunteers for this program.

If you are interested in learning more about this program or signing up for the virtual workshop, contact Susan Sandford at Sandford.susan@countyofdane.com or (608) 669-1816.
