Full Description

Illuminating speeches by famous black women that offer wisdom and clarity, solace and inspiration--curated by, and with personal essays from, a leader whose "voice is going to be making a difference for years to come" (President Barack Obama) Dedicated to the prophetic voices of black women, We Are Like Those Who Dream is an invitation for readers to engage with the galvanizing guidance of a fierce Black community that exists beyond definition and throughout history. Black women have always been pivotal inspirers of transformative debate, and remain crucial carriers of change today. But what is often lost in textbooks or the public consciousness are the voices of the women themselves. This collection features speeches by pivotal figures like Audre Lorde, Oprah Winfrey, Maria W. Stewart, Nina Simone, Ida B. Wells, Shirley Chisholm, Michelle Obama, Yara Shahidi, Winnie Mandela, and more. Packnett threads her observations, inspiration, and personal anecdotes in essays throughout, resulting in a deeply personal book of faith and hope, about how, against it all, Black women continue to move forward. With wisdom, clarity, and conduction, We Are Like Those Who Dream monumentalizes the power of what has been spoken while leaving room to listen to what has yet to be said.
