Professional reviews

"Narrator Almarie Guerra chronicles the lives of important historical figures with the same passion the advocates used to fight injustice and stand up for their beliefs. Offering listeners a diverse look at protesting through the ages, this account spans several centuries, beginning with Joan on Arc in 1429 and ending with the Women's March of 2017. An afterword by Samantha Fuentes, a survivor of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, brings listeners to the present, describing the power and importance of resilience. After each story, a lesson about the subject's unique experience is shared, inspiring listeners to find ways to champion causes in their own communities. M.D. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
