CELEBRATING POWERFUL VOICES: COLLECTING ISSUES #1-7 OF THE REVOLUTIONARY DIGITAL-FIRST SERIES! New voices present relevant- topical visions of social change and personal histories- some true-to-life while others are semi-fictionalized accounts of real experiences. All have one thing in common—innovative styles and compelling stories which examine how our culture builds understanding- tracing society’s arc toward justice as we evolve in pursuit of a more just and compassionate world. Includes talent spotlights. Jules- a Black teenager- is given a pair of old binoculars as he heads out for a morning of birdwatching in Central Park. He soon learns the binoculars show him a lot more than birds- and maybe they keep him safe- too. Jesse Holland’s Mississippi farm has been in his family since their first ancestor was freed from slavery—tended by his grandfather and his father before him. But as Jesse grows into a man- he’s unsure if a patch of land in the Piney Woods and a life of tilling soil is his true destiny. But destiny can mean so much more than dirt and a tractor…Lanice’s passion for cooking and desire for a career in the culinary arts are challenged by the source of her inspiration—her father—who is concerned about his only daughter working in a kitchen- like so many Black Americans before her. This and many more!
