This biography and picture book is about Ron McNair, future scientist and astronaut, and his peaceful mission for change as a boy. In the book, Ron wants to check out books all by himself, but because of his skin color, he cannot get his own library card. Ron eventually desegregates his library, which was inspiring to read. Had no idea about this young astronaut's life in 1950s South Carolina. Would recommend to any teacher.
