Children Ages 8+ • 1.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This powerful anthology of essays, poems, and songs thrums with purpose as the voices of talented narrators Bahni Turpin, Guy Lockard, January LaVoy, Soneela Nankani, and others combine. The collection is intended to provide children with hope and courage when they're confronted with injustice, racism, and hate. The narrators' voices are joyfully diverse, filled with understanding and conviction, and unified by heartfelt emotion. Vibrant music adds a perfect finishing touch, including original music by Curtis Hudson and the classic song, "Get on Board," sung by the great Paul Robeson. To echo Jacqueline Woodson's words, this audio is a "blanket of love that each of you is wrapped in," a tapestry of caring voices and encouraging words for children and families to treasure during tumultuous times.
