There were signs all through town telling eight-year-old Connie where she could and could not go. But when Connie sees four young men take a stand for equal rights at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, she realizes that things may soon change. This event sparks a movement in her town and region. And while Connie is too young to march or give a speech, she helps her brother and sister make signs for Equality Now. Changes are coming to Connie’s town and her family is excited and a little worried. As for Connie, she just wants to sit at the lunch counter and eat a banana split like everyone else. That seems fair, doesn’t it? © 31 pages
