Let It Shine
by Andrea Davis Pinkney

Stories of Black Women Freedom Fighters

When Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus, she sparked a protest that changed America. Having escaped slavery on the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman defied bounty hunters and returned to the South again and again to lead slaves to freedom. As the first black woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, Shirley Chisholm paved the way for generations of women to enter government.

The lives these women led are part of one incredible story. It’s a story about courage in the face of inequality, oppression, prejudice, and fear. It’s a story about the challenges and triumphs of the battle for civil rights. And it’s a story about speaking out for what you believe, in when it feels like no one is listening. The ten freedom fighters featured in this book let their lights shine on the darkness of discrimination. And shine they did.
