Publisher's Summary

“This is the most consequential election in our history. Because right now, there are people in power who are only in power for themselves.” (Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer)

More Than a Vote: Our Voices. Our Vote. is a battle cry to educate, inspire, and turn nonvoters into voters. Formed by a coalition of Black athletes and artists headlined by NBA star LeBron James, More Than a Vote is a nonprofit voting rights organization aimed at combating voter suppression, systemic racism, and misinformation that disproportionately disenfranchises communities of color. In this one-of-a-kind Words + Music special, we hear from an all-star chorus of activists and entertainers on the front lines of today’s voting rights movement. Voices include LeBron James, Octavia Spencer, Jalen Rose, Amanda Seales, Leon Bridges, and many more. 

Hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Wesley Lowery and political analyst Tiffany D. Cross, this audio-only special comes merely days before millions of voters head to the ballot box. Supported by a collection of profoundly insightful interviews, Cross and Lowery expose the inner workings of voter suppression as it exists today while uprooting the history of disenfranchisement in America. Like the voting rights movements of yesteryear, this empowering special is amplified by the voices of prominent leaders and stars proclaiming why they vote as well as searing original performances from musical artists and poets. 

“We stand on the shoulders of ancestors that have sacrificed themselves for us to have this right,” says former NBA player and current ESPN analyst Jalen Rose. “This is likely the most important voting cycle of the United States.” These athletes, artists, and activists refuse to be quiet, will not shut up and dribble, and will not relent in their pursuit of truth, justice, equality, and, specifically, equal access to the polls. This is a fearless, loud, and vocal call to action to both own your voice and, most importantly, use your voice.

A total Inspiration

Listening to this gem has given me the voice to speak out to others who are professing not to vote. It has given me power when I say to my village as Lebron said, we have power? If we didn't they would not be trying so hard to suppress our vote.

We needed this listen for such a time as this. But just in case you are wondering why you should listen to it just listen and you will get your answer.

what even is this in my recommendations for?

Im here for science not politics. Lebron is not qualified to lecture me on anything unless it involves how to Choke in the finals. Only people voting for pedo Joe are people that dont know how to work for a living.

Lebron James, more than an athlete!

These athletes, artists, and activists refuse to be quiet, will not shut-up and dribble, and will not relent in their pursuit of truth, justice, equality, and specifically, equal access to the polls. This is a fearless, loud, and vocal call to action to both own your voice and, most importantly, use your voice.

On my observation, LBJ received unfair treatment because he is black. He tried hard and his greatness exceed no matter how you hate and bring him down. #Blacklivesmatter We are equal and have the right to vote, to speak and to fight!

Audible pushing this political garbage. why?

Struggled to listen to the whole book to hear a point of veiw.

All I got was Trump is a bad man and America is a terrible country.

I don't understand why audible as a profesional corporation would promote this garbage as a free read. I did not get any free reads from the other political side.

Big Pharma Owns the Media

Big Pharma owns the Democratic Party and the media, using BLM as a huge push for the Democratic Party is horrible. Mandatory vaccination for all is what we will get if democrats win. Obama care funneled so much money to big pharma. This is so wrong on so many levels. Vote republican.
