Teen activist Marley Dias's passion for social action is amplified through Damaras Obi's youthful and upbeat narration. Dias rose to prominence when she grew tired of not seeing herself represented in books. She then founded #1000blackgirlbooks with the purpose of collecting and distributing thousands of books featuring black girl protagonists. Dias opens up about her family and friends and how young people can participate in social activism. Obi's performance is empowering; she embodies the tough and honest conversations Dias is fostering with her peers and offering up tips, advice, and encouragement on how to support a cause. Cheery pings throughout the narration highlight impactful quotes that will inspire anyone who wants to make a difference. J.E.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2018]
