Equality.  Such a small word but such a hard thing to achieve.  During the first half of the 20th century, African Americans were treated differently from the rest of the population.  There were segregated schools and restaurants and even drinking fountains.  Through a series of laws passed, courageous actions and non-violent protests, segregation slowly came to an end.  This book celebrates the non-violent protests and the courageous people who risked it all to bring about much needed change in our country.
SUBJECTS:     African Americans -- Poetry.
                        Segregation -- Poetry.
                        Civil rights movements -- Poetry.
