Voices of Change: Inspiring Words from Activists Around the Globe (Paperback)
Voices of Change brings together the transformative and empowering words of two centuries of activists in one bold and powerful quote book. Harriet Tubman's demand for her right to liberty or death stands beside Elie Wiesel's call to combat persecution wherever it stands. Collected in one place, these stirring proclamations remind readers of the connections between movements across time and place for a more just world.
Contemporary activists like Colin Kaepernick, Angela Y. Davis, Ijeoma Oluo, and Greta Thunberg echo the words of celebrated reformers from the past, including Susan B. Anthony, César Chévez, W. E. B. Du Bois, and Mother Jones. Capsule biographies provide context for each quote, while moving portraits and protest photos from around the world remind readers that much of the work of activism happens on the ground and in the streets.
Voices of Change will inspire generations of activists and justice-minded readers to keep fighting for what they believe in.
