Publisher's Summary

Part memoir, part call to action, this young listeners’ edition dives into the inspiring life of the late US Representative Elijah Cummings - from childhood through his time as chairman of the House Oversight Committee - and his tireless fight for justice.

Growing up as the child of former sharecroppers in a segregated Baltimore, Elijah Cummings saw firsthand how injustice could run rampant, even in a democracy that promises fairness and equality. But with a strong support system and fiery self-discipline, Elijah utilized the momentum of the civil rights movement to overcome the obstacles of poverty and racism to effect change at a time when our country so badly needed it.

In We’re Better than This, listeners will learn not only that we must be and do better than our oppressors but that it is our shared responsibility as a nation to keep our democracy intact because it is the only way to pursue freedom, justice, and equality for all.
