A Mighty Long Way
Carlotta Walls Lanier
336 pages

​Can you imagine being the first of many to walk into a school with your books in your hand, being spit on, and called bad names? You may think that would never happen, but it did to Carlotta Walls Lanier. She was the first to conquer segregation on her journey to justice at Little Rock Central High School in 1957. In this book, you will learn about what it feels like to be a little African-American girl entering the world of integration. Along Carlotta Walls Lanier’s “mighty long way,” you will think how hard she had to work to be who she is today. She was part of The Little Rock Nine. In fact she was the youngest.

​If you want to go on a journey through America's past and struggles, you should read this book. With all of the facts, action, and excitement, you will not be able to put the book down. I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of ten, because it does have some adult ideas and concepts. If you haven’t read this book, you are missing out on a big part of American history.
