SAINT PAUL, Minn. - Aug. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- "Justice Makes a Difference: The Story of Miss Freedom Fighter, Esquire," has been named the first place winner of the 2018 Purple Dragonfly Book Award in the charity/making a difference category. The prestigious award honors excellence in children's books.

"Justice Makes a Difference is inspiring young people to make a difference," said Tyner.

Written by Dr. Artika Tyner and Jacklyn Milton, both of whom are passionate educators and community advocates, and illustrated by Jeremy Norton, "Justice Makes a Difference (http://missfreedomfighteresquire.org/)" is the inspiring story of one little girl's realization that her name is her destiny.

The book is a mirror of Tyner's own childhood and the lessons she learned from her grandmother about the power of words, education and social responsibility. Just as Tyner did, Justice grows up witnessing the many ways her grandmother served her community and wants to make her own difference in the world.

Through conversations with her grandmother and their shared love of books, Justice learns about important men and women throughout history that have changed the world – Ella Baker, Shirley Chisholm, Charles Hamilton Houston, Dr. Wangari Maathai, Paul Robeson and Ida B. Wells.

"Justice learns how each leader was a champion for advancing justice and improving the world, and she dreams of becoming a change maker, too – "Miss Freedom Fighter, Esquire," a superhero with a law degree and an afro!" said Tyner.

The book was already an international best-seller, reaching audiences from India and Ghana to Australia and Cuba, and endorsed by professionals ranging from educators to judges. It is available in hardcover or paperback (www.artikatyner.com) and on Amazon in a Kindle edition (https://www.amazon.com/Justice-Makes-Difference-Freedom-F...). Proceeds from the sale of the children's book go toward education and furthering the goals and mission of Planting People Growing Justice Leadership Institute, a nonprofit organization founded by Tyner.

Winning the first place 2018 Purple Dragonfly Book Award is a testimony to the powerful message embodied in "Justice Makes a Difference: The Story of Miss Freedom Fighter, Esquire." The children's book promotes literacy, leadership development and cultural awareness, and encourages youngsters to embrace their own power.
