Read in April, 2012

I know the author, and I pre-ordered her book. When I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. It was a fascinating glimpse into the civil rights marches, including several led by children who were sent to jail, expelled from schools, and suffered greatly for their sacrifice. In the end, they triumphed, changing several laws and making the world a more equal place. Cynthia did an amazing job with this book, and the photos are compelling, telling the story from all sides. I have a newfound respect for protesters and for the black pioneers who fought to make life better. I highly recommend this book, and my fifteen year old is reading it now. I can't think of any age that wouldn't appreciate such a beautiful work. I also plan on reading it to my 11 year old.
