 The Story of Tar Beach



Faith Ringgold painted Tar Beach in 1988. 

Tar Beach tells a story about the time when FR was a little girl.

Andrea, a children’s book editor saw a 

poster of the Tar Beach quilt in her doctor's office.

Andrea knew loved the story so she called Faith Ringgold 

to ask if FR would make Tar Beach 

into a children’s book. It was the first children’s 

book that Faith Ringgold made, and it was a winner!

Tar Beach is in the collection of the Guggenheim
