Publisher's Description

Now in paperback--a personal look at the civil rights movement of the 1950s and '60s told through dozens of interviews conducted by Washington, D.C., fourth graders with their parents, grandparents, neighbors, and others who helped fight the battle against segregation and changed the course of history. With a foreword by Rosa Parks, three introductory essays, and over 40 archival photographs, this thoughtful, compelling, and educational book pays tribute to the many ordinary people who dedicated themselves to the cause of freedom and the fight for equality.

Editorial Reviews

"The essays are sophisticated...but the interviews will grab elementary-grade readers."--Booklist

"This is must reading for all who are interested in America's struggle for racial justice, then and now."--Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
