Real immigrant perspectives of America's immigration system, perfect for fans of The Book of Awesome Women, Dear America, or American Like Me.
Positive and heroic stories. Far too often, immigrants are demonized and scapegoated, when they should be celebrated as heroes and revolutionaries. This audiobook strings together both triumphant and painful tales of immigrants who blazed trails and broke barriers in the fight for fundamental human rights.
Unsung Heroes. These are ordinary people who have used their own stories on the fight for citizenship to illustrate their triumphs and trials as immigrants in a new land. Each uses a different strategy and tactics; what works for one does not work for another. They all have one thing in common, however?a desire for racial and social justice.
Unsung America will transform how you view immigrants and refugees. In this celebratory audiobook, you will discover:
- Powerful theories of social change, and how what seems radical in one era can be normalized in the next
- How the fight for citizenship is interconnected and interrelated to other struggles such as the civil rights movement and the LGBTQ movement
- Stories about ordinary people doing extraordinary things and how you, too, can be a force for good in the world
