Some brief overview of book

Miriam Makeba, a Grammy Awardwinning South African singer, rose to fame in the hearts of her people at the pinnacle of apartheida brutal system of segregation similar to American Jim Crow laws. Mama Africa, as they called her, raised her voice to help combat these injustices at jazz clubs in Johannesburg; in exile, at a rally beside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; and before the United Nations. Set defiantly in the present tense, this biography offers readers an intimate view of Makebas fight for equality.

Kathryn Erskines call-and-response style text and Charly Palmers bold illustrations come together in a raw, riveting duet of protest song and praise poem. A testament to how a single voice helped to shake up the worldand can continue to do so.
