HAVE YOU EVER had to stand alone for something you believed in? We learn about many heroes who have gone against the grain for something they were passionate about and felt strongly about. We see the controversy for the NFL protest of the anthem. Even though there is some confusion and lack of clarity of the protest, people in these books felt strong about their beliefs and everyone knew what they were protesting and standing up against. Learn more about individuals who stood up against the Nazis, nuclear weapons, and much more. Our students enjoy reading about super heroes and those who made a positive difference in our world. This book is located in a section that we don’t usually gravitate towards but it is worth your time and thought to learn more about these influential individuals.
