In the first week of May 1963, African American families gathered all around Birmingham, Alabama, to hear Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speak. The people had come to plan, to organize, to mobilize, and to rally against the discriminatory Jim Crow laws that kept black people separate from white people. That week, thousands of children and teens volunteered to march for their civil rights in the palace of their parents, who were fearful of login their jobs.
     Facing fear and hate, the courage and resilience of the children who marched in these protests changed the world in ways more monumental than they could have ever imagined.
     The Coretta Scott King Honor-winning artist Frank Morrison uses emotive oil paintings to bring this moving text to life, while the debut author Monica Clark-Robinson’s moving the poetic words document a hopeful and remarkable time in our American History. © 38 pages
