Janina Edwards's steady and friendly narration suits this children's biography about the life and activism of Claudette Colvin, who helped launch the Montgomery bus boycotts when she was 15 years old. She refused to give up her seat to a white passenger--nine months before Rosa Parks. Young listeners will be inspired by the teenage Colvin's determination to be recognized as a person with the same rights that others had. And they'll be galvanized to learn more about historical and current racial injustices. Edwards narrates in a warm voice that conveys Colvin's curiosity, devastation at her sister's death, and anger and frustrations in the face of racist discrimination. Chelsea Clinton narrates a brief letter to explain the motivation behind publishing the SHE PERSISTED chapter book series. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
