- A Memoir
- By: Joy Harjo
- Narrated by: Joy Harjo
- Length: 4 hrs and 6 mins
In this transcendent memoir, grounded in tribal myth and ancestry, music and poetry, Joy Harjo, one of our leading Native American voices, details her journey to becoming a poet. Born in Oklahoma, Harjo grew up learning to dodge an abusive stepfather by finding shelter in her imagination, a deep spiritual life, and connection with the natural world. She attended an Indian arts boarding school, where she nourished an appreciation for painting, music, and poetry; gave birth while still a teenager; and struggled on her own as a single mother, eventually finding her poetic voice.

Wonderful and intentional storyteller...
I don't think I've ever heard words so intentionally and purposefully bound together. What a reflective journey Harjo takes us un!

When They Call You a Terrorist
- A Black Lives Matter Memoir
- By: Patrisse Khan-Cullors, asha bandele
- Narrated by: Patrisse Khan-Cullors
- Length: 6 hrs and 29 mins
When They Call You a Terrorist is the essential audiobook for every conscientious American. From one of the cofounders of the Black Lives Matter movement comes a poetic audiobook memoir and reflection on humanity. Necessary and timely, Patrisse Cullors' story asks us to remember that protest in the interest of the most vulnerable comes from love.
Everyone should listen!

Powerful truth telling story. The author brought truth to police violence and racial injustice by eloquently and intentionality bridging the personal with institutions and policy.
