We Rise, We Resist, We Raise Our Voices, edited by Wade Hudson and Cheryl Willis Hudson, published by Crown Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books in partnership with Just Us Books, is an Honor Book in the Books for Older Children Category. We Rise, We Resist, We Raise Our Voices is an empowering anthology that encourages resilience when “the world feels upside down.” Budding social activists looking for inspiration and ways to rise up, resist the status quo, and raise their voices in harmony as they seek to change the world will find plenty of inspiration in the thirty different pieces featured here. Written by diverse authors, the poems, essays, stories and letters, many portraying personal struggles, reflect a universal portrait of humanity. Intensified by the unique artwork of twenty-two artists, each page celebrates diversity and shines a light on life’s daily complexities.
