Justice Makes a Difference
The Story of Miss Freedom Fighter, Esquire
“‘Words are powerful,’ Grandma told Justice. ‘They can be used in powerful ways to do good or to do harm. That’s why it’s important to always be careful with your words.’”
Justice has grown up witnessing the many ways her grandma serves the community. She wants to make a difference in the world, too, but how? Isn’t she too young? Through conversations with her grandma and their shared love of books, Justice learns about important women and men throughout history who changed the world: Ella Baker, Shirley Chisholm, Charles Hamilton Houston, Dr. Wangari Maathai, Paul Robeson, and Ida B. Wells. Justice learns how each leader was a champion for advancing justice and improving the world, and she dreams of becoming a change maker, too—"Miss Freedom Fighter, Esquire," a superhero with a law degree and an afro!
