|aInterviews between young people and people who took part in the civil rights movement accompany essays that describe the history of efforts to make equality a reality for African Americans.
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.
