Stacey Abrams was always destined for big things because she always imagined more. Now she protects the least powerful, works toward making voting fair and easy, and demands better for Georgia and every other state in this nation. Stacey Abrams’s determination, perseverance, and courage will inspire younger generations to make meaningful change in the world.

“A brilliant introduction to a powerful Black female politician and voting rights activist. Todd and Freeman bring this to life in their creative biography of Georgia-based politician Abrams. Voting rights champions across two centuries—Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, Septima Poinsette Clark, and Fannie Lou Hamer—speak to one another about Abrams as they reflect on the barriers that national and state governments have systematically erected to prevent specific populations from voting.” -Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Freeman’s airbrush-style digital art leans into portraiture while visually bridging the astral divide, evoking yearning, frustration, and sisterly pride in their ongoing mission of purpose."  -Publishers Weekly
