This was the very first library book I borrowed from the West Palm Beach Library. I remember not wanting to return it, it was my favorite. It was one of the first times that I became aware of the struggles of Black people in America. I was raised to treat people as I wanted to be treated. At the age of 10, this was the first time I realized that not everyone was raised as I was. I remember having a happy and 'proud' feeling when Mary marched down the road with her first few students. I could picture her and her pupils, walking purposefully toward their new school. I would recommend this book to everyone. It shows perseverance, the ability to make a difference, and the determination the of the human spirit. This 'spirit' that is written about, is probably what inspired me, to not accept the education the public school system deemed acceptable for my kids. I chose to make a change and a difference for my children, just as Mary did for her 'children'!
