This inspiring introduction to activism and social justice for young teens shows the important role music plays in changing the world, featuring:
- Musicians young teens will know and love: Beyonc , Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Lady Gaga, Lil Nas X, and more
- Iconic artists from past generations: readers will learn about the extraordinary impact of artists such as Nina Simone, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Neil Young, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Tracy Chapman, and more.
- Playlists for each social justice issue: Each chapter includes a playlist with recommended songs about an area of activism, from classic tracks to contemporary hits.
In Rise Up and Sing , Andrea Warner explores how music has contributed to the fight for social justice. Across eight areas of activism--the climate emergency, Indigenous rights, civil rights, disability rights, 2SLGBTQIA+ rights, gender equality, the peace/anti-war movement, and human rights--Warner introduces some of the artists, past and present, who have made a difference both on stage and off.
Through ground-breaking artists and iconic moments, Rise Up and Sing shows us that a song is never just a song, and that music really does have the power to change the world.
