Gr 7 Up-Kallen spotlights the unsung women who played a significant role in the Civil Rights movement. Short chapters are divided into various aspects of the struggle, including organizations, protests, education, voting rights, political office, radicals, and creative expression. Up-close black-and-white photographs and vignettes highlight key people. Much of the information can be found in other resources, but this book will serve as a good starting point for reports on the struggle for civil rights. The chapter on radicals and militants is perhaps the most interesting since it highlights how women were not always welcome to protest because of their gender.-Kelly Czarnecki, Bloomington Public Library, IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
