Commemorate history by listening together. Fifty years after the height of the civil rights movement, sharing literature that tackles issues of prejudice allows teachers, librarians, parents, and children to continue the necessary dialogue about the past, and its impact on our society today.
Listening Library, award-winning publisher of audiobooks for kids and teens, has created a special CD sampler: Commemorating Civil Rights with Award-Winning Stories. In addition to selected audiobook clips, listen to an exclusive Q & A with Christopher Paul Curtis, author of the award-winning THE WATSONS GO TO BIRMINGHAM – 1963, and the audiobook narrator, LeVar Burton, as they each discuss how storytelling can impart history’s lessons to a new generation, and how hearing a story read aloud can help foster a love of reading.
