Bring Black history in America to vivid life for kids through powerful sound clips from 12 Black leaders, amplified by bold illustrations and background facts.

*2024 Notable Social Studies Trade Book*

With the touch of the button, hear impactful quotes spoken by inspiring Black Americans in primary source audio files. Aimed at children ages 7–12, a succinct profile of the speaker alongside an explanation of the significance of the quote and moment provide the context for each audio clip. A vibrant illustration of the speaker completes the picture.

Through the included quotes, kids gain an age-appropriate understanding of the strides made in the ongoing journey for equality, from the early days of sound recording to modern day.

Lift Every Voice and Change features the voices of:

  • Booker T. Washington
  • Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr
  • John Lewis
  • Stokely Carmichael
  • James Baldwin
  • Stacey Abrams
  • Toni Morrison
  • Katherine Johnson
  • Jay-Z
  • Gladys Mae West
  • Faith Ringgold
  • Ayo Tometi

The voices chosen represent an equal number of men and women, historical and modern figures, across a variety of disciplines. Some are household names and others may very well be introduced to children for the first time! Inspire the next generation of leading voices by inviting them to listen to and learn from the Black leaders of yesterday and today.

Manufacturer’s note: Please pull the white tab out of the back of the book before use. Sound buttons require a firm push in the exact location to work, which may be hard for young children. Sound clips range in length, but are an average of 12 seconds long.

“Listen up world! This book has something to say! I absolutely love the beautifully illustrated portraits and well detailed biographies of Black leaders. Being able to hear the voices of figures from Black History was treat and really brought them to life. Many times, students only read about history but being able to hear their voices made it more personal and more in-depth. This book is a triple threat! I highly recommend this book for everyone.” - Cicely Lewis, Read Woke, Inc., 2020 National School Librarian of the Year

...a straightforward biographical packaging that challenges readers to hone their own voices. - Publishers Weekly
