We Are the Change: Words of Inspiration from Civil Rights Leaders
introduction by Harry Belefonte
Have you picked up a book and without cracking it open, knew that it was going to be something extraordinary? That was my initial response to We Are the Change: Words of Inspiration from Civil Rights Leaders.
The case features embossed lettering and Dan Santat's illustration of a John Lewis quote.
We may not have chosen the time, but the time has chosen us.
Sixteen remarkable artists lend their talents to this project. Each illustrator selected a a Civil Rights leader's inspirational words. Art is reflective of the message and unique to the artist's style. Each illustrator's personal consideration of the quotation is included. Images and text are compelling and profoundly moving.
The volume, inspired by the work of the American Civil Liberties Union, echoes a commitment to human rights. Harry Belafonte offers a thoughtful introduction.
Anthology of poetry, essays, and art reflects and honors the ongoing struggle for justice, equality, and respect.
