Product Description

Blown-up, Sepia-toned portraits--some famous, some not--recall the struggles and fight for school integration. Toni Morrison's simple captions place words in the photographed person's mouths, capturing the elements of the time and mood of the era. Simply done, this elegant photograph-book evokes a powerful remembrance of the suffering and struggles needed at each step of the struggle for Civil Rights. 78 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.

Publisher's Description

Toni Morrison has collected a treasure chest of archival photographs that depict the historical events surrounding school desegregation. These unforgettable images serve as the inspiration for Ms. Morrison’s text—a fictional account of the dialogue and emotions of the children who lived during the era of “separate but equal” schooling. Remember is a unique pictorial and narrative journey that introduces children to a watershed period in American history and its relevance to us today.
Remember will be published on the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision ending legal school segregation, handed down on May 17, 1954.

Editorial Reviews

"The provocative, candid images and conversational text should spark questions and discussion, a respect for past sacrifices, and inspiration for facing future challenges." School Library Journal

"The photos are electrifying. Beautifully reproduced in sepia prints, the archival images humanize the politics of the civil rights movement." Booklist, ALA

"Puts history in context for a new generation of readers." Bookpage

"Beautiful and thorough." Columbus Dispatch

Painful, personal and provocative, [Morrison's] focused visual history serves as a potent catalyst for discussing segregation and integration.
