Medgar Evers, Emmett Till, Dr. Martin Luther King, four young girls at a church in Alabama, the bridge in Selma-these evoke iconic images and memories of the Civil Rights movement. They are the places visited by Liberty and a diverse group of people in this book for kids.
The story is simply and honestly told and introduces why the people included were so important and why the places mentioned need to be remembered. Additional information is included at the end of the book.
I think that this title is very age appropriated and important. Read it with a child or in a classroom and begin to have those important and necessary conversations.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
