Say Their Names
Written by Caroline Brewer / Illustrated by Adrian Brandon / Published by Reycraft Books
Seven-year-old Aliya sees the public reaction to recent and tragic events on TV news. Determined to make sure the lives of those lost matter, she leads her own protest march that extends beyond her living room and into her neighborhood to "say their names" and loudly proclaim "good people come in all colors."
Both call to action and act of remembrance, this poetic journey through the past, present, and future of the Black Lives Matter movement is a rallying cry for solidarity and justice. Say Their Names encourages us all to use our voices and make certain those lost are never forgotten.
