“Pertinent, refreshing, and a true pleasure to read. It is wonderful to see such a comprehensive guide to civil rights education for young people. I am gratified to know that such a meaningful and intensive way to study these important issues is available to families.” —Kweisi Mfume, president, NAACP
“This is a much-needed work that should be in every school and public library, as well as in the home.
