    A must for everyone's life

    This is one fascinating book. Each of the photos tells a story of a struggle for freedom most of us could not imagine today, regardless of our race. The chronicle contains a timeline that puts events of the civil rights movement into a time perspective and the running text tells the story in a straight forward and honest fashion. Children of all races should have the opportunity to understand what took place in our history in order that they might understand that there are several things that we must never allow to happen again

    I Also Recommend:


    I owned this book for 2 years and NEVER read it! 1 day I gave a copy to my white FRIEND as a gag gift! (I STRESS FRIEND!) W/o opening the book he tells me about the last time a Black man was lynched. Accepting his unspoken challenge I flipped to the year and not only was there an article, but a PICTURE of the lynching!

    I knew then that I had to learn more about my own race. I proceeded to read the book from cover to cover! This book is not chapters and chapters of dreary "we shall overcome" text, but quick little paragraphs and articles and PICTURES showing what happened! It also tells us of origins of some of the things we have heard about, but do not really know why it is said! (E.G. Jim Crow, Sambo, and the REAL ROSA PARKS story!)

    It also is not a bashing of WHITE people! It speaks highly of the people that helped the civil rights struggle. [E.G. Adam Clayton Powell, President Kennedy (lots of courage, White people called him a TRAITOR) and the Maryland post office worker who marched across the south on his vacation time to promote equality (BRAVE MAN)]

    I can give you specific examples because I went back just yesterday to look up a few facts, since a 61 y/o person told me that JIM CROW was not a law. (IT WAS) I can say the picture of the Black dining room behind the white outhouse was unsettling to me!

    From how we REALLY got to the USA to the popularity of Bill Clinton, this books covers it all!

    My one small criticism is it did not tell me that Martin Luther King Jr. first attended Morehouse college at 15 years old, but I can live with that!

    I have a friend that adopted a black child and I am going to recommend that they purchase this book, so the CHILD has a real base and it not influenced by the URBAN LEGENDS that are passed around!!

    In conclusion,
    A MUST READ and a KEEP SAKE just like an encyclopedia!
