Stand up! : 10 mighty women who made a change / by Brittney Cooper ; illustrated by Cathy Ann Johnson.
"[With a conversational tone] tells the stories of ten historic female figures who changed the world by standing up for what's right, including legendary Civil Rights activists like Ruby Bridges and Rosa Parks and spanning to contemporary role models like Bree Newsome, who removed the confederate flag from the South Carolina state house grounds, and Mari Copeny, a youth activist who fought for clean water in Flint, Michigan. [The author's] . . . text depicts both famous and unsung Black women who took a stand and made the world a better place for future generations. Each heroic figure is interconnected by a united quest for equity, and offers young readers a . . . call to action, reminding them that they are mighty too, and can be forces for change when they stand up!"--Provided by publisher.
