All of his life, ten-year-old Michael had thought of it as his tree. Sweet and flowering in summer, and evergreen in winter, it grew up past his third-story window in an old brownstone on a shabby city street. Gray-haired Mrs. Jacobson, next door, said that the tree, a southern magnolia, was rare this far north. She loved it, too, but when a construction company announced All of his life, ten-year-old Michael had thought of it as his tree.

That other tree in Brooklyn wasn't half so rare as the magnolia grandiflora that is marked by a construction firm for removal along with a row of old brownstones, including the one where Michael lives on welfare with his arthritic, illiterate grandfather

White characters in What Are We Going to Do, Michael? (1973) tell the story of African American activist Hattie Carthan’s fight to save a southern magnolia tree. Nellie Burchardt’s story is based upon true facts and events that occurred in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Yet, the way in which Burchardt portrays Michael and Mrs. Jacobson belies parts of the true story. In the children’s book, the two protagonists appear as white residents of a run-down, racially diverse neighborhood.

Jackie Burkhardt: I just said I do. Annette: So do I, so you are too. Eric: Donna, are you following this? . I think one of them's a slutball and one of them knows it. Annette: I think what we need to do is go talk about Michael. Eric: Donna, are you following this? Donna Pinciotti: Um. . Jackie Burkhardt: Fine. I'll try to use small words so you can understand me. Annette: That's NOT going to be good enough.

In my case, it bred a deep optimism about America and the notion that we really can act collectively for the common good.
