Following the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and others, Black Lives Matter became the civil rights movement of our lifetime.
But despite noble intentions, many Americans only see angry riots and destruction, instead of civil disobedience and a courageous struggle for racial equality and justice.
In his fourth book, author Ben Clement presents a peaceful protest march through the eyes of a young Black girl named Tanisha and a white boy named Timmy, who valiantly takes a knee.
Tanisha is young, gifted, and unapologetically Black. Although she only met Timmy briefly at a Black Lives Matter rally, she tells how Timmy came to be there, and more importantly, how this white child knelt before a legion of riot police to inspire a civil rights movement.
