Voice of Freedom: Fannie Lou Hamer: The Spirit of the Civil Rights MovementVoice of Freedom: Fannie Lou Hamer: The Spirit of the Civil Rights Movement by Carole Boston Weatherford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Told in verse a la Brown Girl Dreaming, this nonfiction picture book tells the story of a woman who fought against insurmountable odds to give African Americans the voice that wasn’t given to them. A timeline is included of key moments during her lifetime.
