Vote!

Summary

August 18, 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, which prohibited states and the US government from denying citizens the right to vote on the basis of sex. This book reveals how the 70-year-long fight for women's suffrage was hard-won by leaders such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Alice Paul, Carrie Chapman Catt, and others. It demonstrates how their success led to the civil rights and feminist movements of the mid- and late-20th century, as well as today's #MeToo, #YesAllWomen, and Black Lives Matter movements. In the face of voter ID laws, voter purges, gerrymandering, and other restrictions, Americans continue to fight for equality in voting rights.

The Black Friend

3 ratings

Summary

Writing from the perspective of a friend, Frederick Joseph offers candid reflections on his own experiences with racism and conversations with prominent artists and activists about theirs - creating an essential listen for white people who are committed anti-racists and those newly come to the cause of racial justice. “We don’t see color.” “I didn’t know Black people liked Star Wars!” “What hood are you from?” For Frederick Joseph, life as a transfer student in a largely white high school was full of wince-worthy moments that he often simply let go. As he grew older, however, he saw these as missed opportunities not only to stand up for himself, but to spread awareness to those white people who didn’t see the negative impact they were having.  Speaking directly to the listener, The Black Friend calls up race-related anecdotes from the author’s past, weaving in his thoughts on why they were hurtful and how he might handle things differently now. Each chapter features the voice of at least one artist or activist, including Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give; April Reign, creator of #OscarsSoWhite; Jemele Hill, sports journalist and podcast host; and 11 others. Touching on everything from cultural appropriation to power dynamics, “reverse racism” to white privilege, microaggressions to the tragic results of overt racism, this book serves as conversation starter, tool kit, and invaluable window into the life of a former “token Black kid” who now presents himself as the friend many listeners need. Includes an encyclopedia of racism, providing details on relevant historical events, terminology, and more.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Period Power

Summary

PERIOD founder and Harvard College student Nadya Okamoto offers a manifesto on menstruation and why we can no longer silence those who bleed - and how to engage in youth activism. Throughout history, periods have been hidden from the public. They’re taboo. They’re embarrassing. They’re gross. And due to a crumbling or nonexistent national sex ed program, they are misunderstood. Because of these stigmas, a status quo has been established to exclude people who menstruate from the seat at the decision-making table, creating discriminations like the tampon tax, medicines that favor male biology, and more.  Period Power aims to explain what menstruation is, shed light on the stigmas and resulting biases, and create a strategy to end the silence and prompt conversation about periods.

Teenagers Learning Strategies

Summary

Do you find studies boring because you forget things quickly? Do you feel your grades does not reflect your strength? During our learning phase of life, we come across a lot of information. We retain some, and the rest goes out of the window, as we never knew about it. Learning needs to be a meaningful experience to be effective. There is no shortage of information with the advent of the internet. I find it strange that our education system focusses basically on “what we need to learn” and not “how to learn”. We need to equip our future generation with learning tools (how to learn), and then, learning will be easy and enjoyable. Students need guidance from their teachers, and they can learn a lot by themselves. This self-help book aims to help students in secondary and tertiary level. It highlights essential components of learning that students can use to their advantage to make it self-directed, self-organized, and self-motivated. Buy now to learn how to learn.

The Invitation

Summary

This is short book based on quality of information that requires full attention and time to understand. It can be used as a good book to teach young people at the start of their journeys. That is why quality has been chosen over quantity.  Each person walks in life questioning the things we feel and see, but many ignore what these things mean and how they affect the physical and mental beings of ourselves. Each walk of life tosses and turns and understanding the reasons behind this are important so that one can grasp the tasks ahead. Listen on for insight on some of the things that are heard and seen, after all, each person is invited to know, but most ignore precious time.  This book is helpful to understand certain spiritual aspects of life which revolve around us. This book is suitable for people at the age of 13+ and is mostly aimed at adults of all ages, young or old."

The Garden

Summary

From eight-time best-selling author Jon Gordon comes a spiritual fable about the power of faith, hope, and love. Meet Jay and Kay. They’re twins, and like many teenagers their age, they’re dealing with stress and anxiety. One day, on their way to school, they have a nice conversation with their old family friend and youth soccer coach Mr. Erwin, who shows them a special garden he created in his backyard.  The garden serves as both a place and a metaphor for Mr. Erwin to share a powerful paradigm and practical strategies to help the twins overcome their fear, stress, and anxiety. The Garden is an enlightening and encouraging spiritual fable that reveals the 5 "D"s that can sabotage us and a proven plan to help us overcome and win the battle in our mind. Rooted in Jon Gordon’s faith tradition, this fable is a different kind of book than his previous business fables. However, in his familiar trademark style, he takes a complex subject and simplifies it to help people take action and improve their lives. Everyone will struggle with fear, anxiety, or stress at some point in their lives, and everyone will have to overcome these challenges to create the life they were meant to live. Given that there are many contributing factors that influence how we think and feel, Jon wrote this book to share how the power of love, encouragement, truth, faith, and belief can be part of the solution. Having worked with countless leaders, companies, sports teams, professional athletes, and high school students, Jon Gordon infuses this life-changing story with thought-provoking ideas, practical strategies, and a framework to overcome fear with faith. Whether you are dealing with fear, stress, and anxiety yourself, have a family member who struggles, or are a mental health expert who works with clients, if any of the ideas in this book can be useful to you or the people you love and care about, then it’s worth a walk through The Garden with Jay, Kay, and Mr. Erwin to discover ways to persevere through life with the power of faith, hope, and love.

Summary

Inspired by Abbie Hoffman's radical classic, Steal This Book, author Alexandra Styron's stirring call for resistance and citizen activism will be clearly heard by young people who don't accept "it is what it is", who want to make sure everybody gets an equal piece of the American pie, and who know that the future of the planet is now. Styron's irreverent and informative primer on how to make a difference is organized into three sections: The Why, The What, and The How. The book opens with a personal essay and a historic look at civil disobedience and teenage activism in America. That's followed by a deep dive into several key issues: climate change, racial justice, women's rights, LGBTQIA rights, immigration, religious understanding, and intersectionality. Each chapter includes a summary of key questions, interviews with movers and shakers - from celebrities to youth activists - and spotlights on progressive organizations. The book's final section is packed with how-to advice on ways to engage, from group activities such as organizing, marching, rallying, and petitioning to individual actions like voting with your wallet, volunteering, talking with relatives with different viewpoints, and using social activism to get out a progressive message.

Passione

Summary

Una delle insidie più pericolose e sottovalutate della nostra epoca, in cui le nuove tecnologie digitali funzionano come un rallentatore cognitivo ed emotivo che rende tutto apparentemente fattibile e fruibile senza sforzo, è il progressivo deperimento - se non addirittura l'estinguersi - della passione, quella sfida lanciata al mondo e a se stessi per continuare a migliorarsi, a sperare, a sognare. Ma poiché, senza passione, non c'è una vita vera né una visione del futuro, in primo luogo del proprio, l'unico modo per non arrendersi a questa perdita è invocarla, provocarla, inseguirla, raccontarla.  È quello che fa Paolo Crepet componendo un inventario di storie e riflessioni, attinte dalla propria esperienza esistenziale e professionale, che ruotano attorno a questa parola sacra, in tutte le sue accezioni e declinazioni. Perché spiegare ai giovani che cosa significhi la passione, il fuoco interiore necessario per tenere accesi i propri desideri e cercare di soddisfarli, è oggi un compito fondamentale, se si vuole davvero "sostenerli nella scoperta e costruzione di sé, alimentare la loro gioia, coltivare i loro entusiasmi, non anestetizzarli o assopirli".  E siccome gli esempi valgono più delle parole, l'audiolibro è impreziosito dalle testimonianze di tre campioni di passione: Paolo Fresu, straordinario jazzista acclamato in tutto il mondo; Alessandro Michele, che ha rivoluzionato il panorama internazionale della moda, e Renzo Piano, tra i più celebrati architetti contemporanei. Tre uomini molto diversi per età, formazione e biografia, ma accomunati da un'inconfondibile caratteristica: l'inossidabile entusiasmo che anima il loro lavoro e l'assoluta fedeltà ai sogni di gioventù, che ne ha reso possibile l'avverarsi.  Le loro storie ci insegnano che la passione è basata su ostinazione, tenacia e un'incontenibile urgenza di libertà, ed è un meraviglioso traghetto che trasporta e preserva la speranza di una vita stupefacente. Non è un viaggio facile, e nemmeno per tutti, ma la meta è così speciale che ognuno ha il dovere di dimostrare se ha il coraggio di affrontarlo.
