Description
									In 1963 Birmingham, Alabama, thousands of African American children volunteered to march for their civil rights after hearing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speak. They protested the laws that kept black people separate from white people. Facing fear, hate, and danger, these children used their voices to change the world. 

Frank Morrison's emotive oil-on-canvas paintings bring this historical event to life while Monica Clark-Robinson's moving and poetic words document this remarkable time.
							
Reviews

"A powerful retrospective glimpse at a key event." - Kirkus Reviews

Starred Review "Much of the text will provoke questions and important conversations between children and adult readers. The experiences of segregation are sensitively depicted...A highly readable historical account which deserves a place on picture book and nonfiction shelves alike." - School Library Journal
