“Justice Makes a Difference: The Story of Miss Freedom Fighter, Esquire,” has achieved the International Best Seller List. Written in partnership with my mother, Jacklyn Milton, and illustrated by Jeremy Norton, the children’s book has reached a global audience from Cuba and Australia to India and Ghana.
Available in a paperback edition, the book is also available on Amazon in a Kindle edition. All proceeds from book sales will go toward furthering the work of the nonprofit- Planting People Growing Justice Leadership Institute.
“Justice Makes a Difference” is based on my experiences, a.k.a. Miss Freedom Fighter, and built upon the wisdom of my grandmother (Nellie Lightfoot) who impressed upon me the importance of words and the power they hold. I learned from my grandmother about people throughout history that fought for social justice, worked to make the world a better place, and passes on that message in the book.
Children are often motivated to create change, but feel they’re too young or have no power. My book is designed to show young readers that they can make a difference no matter what their path in life may be and the importance of believing in themselves. The book amply demonstrates the value of literacy, education and cultural awareness, while promoting leadership development, diversity and inclusion.
Justice dreams of becoming a change maker too – “Miss Freedom Fighter, Esquire,” a superhero with a law degree and an afro!”
Attaining the International Best Seller List is a testament to Planting People Growing Justice’s commitment to plant seeds of social change. Young people can make a difference and be leaders for justice and we are leading the way for them with our powerful message.
Remember, “if your vision is for a year, plant wheat. If your vision is for ten years, plant trees. If your vision is for a lifetime, plant people.” (Chinese Proverb)
