Seller's Description:

This powerful picture book introduces young readers to a key event in the struggle for Civil Rights. Winner, Coretta Scott King Honor Award. In 1963 Birmingham, Alabama,Ô_thousands of African American children volunteered to march for their 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 changeÔ_the world. Frank Morrison's emotiveÔ_oil-on-canvas paintingsÔ_bringÔ_thisÔ_historical event to life, while Monica Clark-Robinson's moving and poetic words document this remarkable time. I couldn't play on the same playground as the white kids.Ô_ I couldn't go to their schools.Ô_Ô_ I couldn't drink from their water fountains.Ô_Ô_ There were so many things I couldn't do.
