Publisher's Description

On benches just for 'colored,' black folks obeyed the rules. Rosa Parks at the front of the bus, she let her light shine. In the 1950's and 1960's, the struggle for civil rights forever changed the landscape of America. In her debut Blue Apple book, Vanessa Newton candid images illuminate anew the inequality that affected Americans, young and old. With an introduction by Ruby Bridges and text to the tune of "This Little Light of Mine," Newton's rich, mixed-media illustrations create a vivid message of hope.

Author Bio

Vanessa Newton was a little girl of only three when she found a box of crayons and wished to be an artist. She used many surfaces as canvases, such as white walls and the sides of the kitchen stove. At school, Vanessa met a teacher/artist who encouraged her and now she is living her dream. She is largely self-taught, though she has attended art school in New York. She lives in East Orange, New Jersey with her husband, their seven-year-old daughter, and a fat cat named Kirby.
