A very effective way to introduce kids to prejudice against African Americans during the civil rights era. I loved that it was told from the perspective of two young boys, best friends, one black and one white, and their not understanding the problem, NOT liking it, but still being affected by it. For kids today, it is not something than can be understood, but an attitude they need to be aware of.
