Freedom's School by Lesa Cline-Ransome, illustrations by James E Ransome
Sorry, currently out of stock
The walk to school is long. Some days it’s rainy, or windy, or freezing cold. Sometimes there are dangers lurking along the way, like angry white folks with rocks, or mysterious men on horseback. The schoolhouse is till unpainted, and it’s very plan, but Lizzie has never seen a prettier sight. Except for maybe the teacher Mizz Howard, who has brown skin, just like Lizzie.
They’ve finally made it to Freedom‘s School. But will it be strong enough to stand forever?
From the creators of Light in the Darkness comes a poignant look at what school was like for newly freed African Americans. © 33 pages
