This accessible nonfiction story of the Freedom Marches beginning in 1963 was amazing with the stark black and white photographs of important figures in the marches, personal stories, and a basic timeline of events. The heavy-hitters like Dr. King and Rosa Parks, but also stories of little girls joining up, a one-legged man marching the entire distance, and a old woman who ran a general store to help feed and shelter marchers. Very easy and worth reading.
