Written and narrated by Brittney Cooper, this audio and picture book make an especially fine combination. She introduces 10 incredible Black women who changed history by standing up for what they believed in. The historical, contemporary, well-known, and less-well-known women include Ruby Bridges, Rosa Parks, and Mari Copeny, a youth activist who fought for clean water in Flint, Michigan. Each portion includes musical enhancements that complement the narration, which includes page-turning cues. Cooper's uplifting and gentle delivery helps listeners process the many complex topics. Standing up comes in many different forms--like picking up a pen, getting out the vote, and climbing high. This audiobook will inspire young activists to make the world better for everyone.
