Do you think segregation was bad? Well, you¿ll change your mind when you read freedom¿s Children by: Ellen Levine. This biography interview book tells how segregation was from the view of people who actually experienced it. This book is known for giving good points of views from a person¿s own eyes. Like when the author would interview some person the person would say words like ain¿t, that gave me a good idea how people would talk back then and the interviews would talk about the people¿s troubles. Freedom¿s Children is also a difficult book to read because it interviews people more instead of talking about the events that happened during the movement.Was this review helpful?

First-hand Civil Rights Experience
If you would like to learn more about the civil rights movement,then this is a perfect book for you. Freedom¿s Children, a non-fiction story by Ellen Levine, tells you first-hand about what life was like in the south during the 1950s and `60s from the people who lived through it. This collection of stories from thirty civil rights activists is inspiring and also thrilling. Sheyann Webb and James Roberson are two of the most important people in this collection, even though they all helped make a huge difference. This shows just how bad it was for African Americans in the southern states during the `50s and `60s. This collection of stories was put together to educate readers about the civil rights movement and motivate people to try to be a part of something important. Although the book was great, there were some weak points when the author started writing about what each chapter was about, that might have made the author uninterested in the book. I would have to say the strongest points were when the author added a powerful story that would make you think, ¿Wow, I can¿t believe this actually happened.¿ I would recommend this book to someone who wanted to learn more about the civil rights movement, and maybe someone who was interested in the movement.Was this review helpful?
