    This book really helped my class of fourth graders understand the very human part of the Civil Rights Movement They felt a personal connection to the Little Rock Nine We talked about the iconic picture on the cover for days and they were shocked by the anger they saw reflected in the faces of the protesters This book gave very interesting information about the photographer and also what happened to the people after 1957.

    I bought this book for my son, they were having a reading challenge at school and this book was on the list of required reading After he read it, I ended up using it as a reference for a paper I wrote in my college sociology course, race and ethnic group relations.Lots of great info and pics

    This is a part of our cities past, as we live outside of Little Rock I would recommend every child have the opportunity to read this book While not a pleasant reminder of the bias, misunderstanding and indeed racism that occurred during that time, it is also the story of the hope and peace that can come from reconciliation.
