A timely middle grade nonfiction collection of profiles of prominent activists, featuring full-page black-and-white art. You may only be one person, but you have the power to change the world.
Before they were activists, they were just like you and me. From Frederick Douglass to Malala Yousafzai, from Joan of Arc to John Lewis, from Susan B. Anthony to Janet Mock—these thirty-six remarkable figures show us what it means to take a stand and say no to injustice, even when it would be far easier to stay quiet. This inspiring collection profiles men and women who resisted tyranny, fought the odds, and stood up to bullies who threatened to harm their communities. Along with their portraits and most memorable quotes, their stories will inspire you to speak out and rise up—every single day. Ages 8-12
