9780679890058: Oh, Freedom!: Kids Talk About the Civil Rights Movement with the People Who Made It Happen

Now in paperback--a personal look at the civil rights movement of the 1950s and '60s told through dozens of interviews conducted by Washington, D.C., fourth graders with their parents, grandparents, neighbors, and others who helped fight the battle against segregation and changed the course of history. With a foreword by Rosa Parks, three introductory essays, and over 40 archival photographs, this thoughtful, compelling, and educational book pays tribute to the many ordinary people who dedicated themselves to the cause of freedom and the fight for equality.

From the Publisher:

"This charming book of interviews will spark your child's interest in the civil rights movement and our heritage, and will, I hope, encourage more young people to take on an oral history project, opening a dialogue between the generations and improving understanding and appreciation of the strength and wisdom it took to bring our country this far."
-- Marian Wright Edelman, President, The Children's Defense Fund

"This marvelous book is indispensable. The clarity and empathy jump off the page."
-- Cornell West

From the Back Cover:

"This book is important for the stories it tells, the pictures it shows, and especially for its prevailing message."--School Library Journal (starred review)

"The essays are sophisticated...but the interviews will grab elementary-grade readers."--Booklist

"This is must reading for all who are interested in America's struggle for racial justice, then and now."--Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
