Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom
- My Story of the 1965 Selma Voting Rights March
- By: Lynda Blackmon Lowery
- Narrated by: Damaras Obi
- Length: 1 hr
As the youngest marcher in the 1965 voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Albama, Lynda Blackmon Lowery proved that young adults can be heroes. Jailed nine times before her 15th birthday, Lowery fought alongside Martin Luther King Jr. for the rights of African Americans. In this memoir, she shows today's young listeners what it means to fight nonviolently (even when the police are using violence, as in the Bloody Sunday protest) and how it felt to be part of changing American history.
A fantastic short story on the importance of voting
