LIFTING AS WE CLIMB Black Women's Battle for the Ballot Box

by | Read by Karen Chilton

Children Ages 10+ • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

In a reverent tone, narrator Karen Chilton brings dignity to remarkable and often overlooked African-American women who fought for suffrage in the U.S. Beginning with the start of the Abolitionist Movement in the 1830s and continuing to present-day efforts by African-Americans to fight against voter suppression, this audiobook demonstrates how Black women have had to battle both sexism and racism in their quest for the right to vote. Historical profiles of women such as Sojourner Truth, Mary Church Terrell, Anna Julia Cooper, Mary McLeod Bethune, and Ida B. Wells incorporate quotes from their speeches. In Chilton's voice, their words powerfully convey the passion and strength of these extraordinary women. S.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
