This giveaway of Nevertheless, We Persisted is sponsored by Penguin Random House.

A powerful collection of essays from actors, athletes, politicians, musicians, writers, and teens, including actress Alia Shawkat, poet Azure Antoinette, and many more, each writing about a time when they were held back because of their race, gender, or sexual identity—but persisted. What made them rise up through the hate? How did they break out of society’s limited view of who they are and build the beautiful and hard-won lives they live today? With a foreword by Minnesota senator and up-and-coming Democratic party leader Amy Klobuchar, these essays share deeply personal stories of resilience, faith, love, and, yes, persistence.
