Innosanto Nagara, the bestselling author of four children’s books including A is for Activist, Counting on Community, My Night in the Planetarium, and The Wedding Portrait, tells the story of a child born at the impetus of a social movement. As protests spread from villages to universities and the people are becoming more galvanized and standing together, the child in this fictionalized memoir bears witness and participates in a time of terror and triumph. When the change finally comes, the child who is now an adult reflects back on their life of engagement, struggle, and ultimately, victory. M is for Movement welcomes children into the world of progressive activism, and gently introduces concepts like civil rights, environmental justice, and community solidarity to the K-5 set.
