From my crown

down to the kicks

on my feet...

I AM my ancestors' wildest dreams.

In this electrifying anthem to Black boy joy and pride, a young child discovers his place in a distinguished lineage. As he meets ten exceptional Black men — historical and contemporary figures who have paved the way for his own future success — he internalizes their greatness. Just like them, he can reach his dreams. And just like him, you have within you big potential.
