In September 1957, nine brave African-American students attempted to do something that had not been done in the segregated South—integrate a public school. Until 1957, black students could not attend school with white students, and black schools were often inferior to white schools. However, in the face of hatred, protest, and violence, these courageous students, who came to be known as the Little Rock Nine, led the charge for change. Through riveting primary source photographs, author David Aretha examines this critical time in the Civil Rights Movement.

From Booklist:

The Story of the Civil Rights Movement in Photographs series offers relatively short, fully illustrated introductions to major events of the 1950s and 1960s that furthered the cause of justice for African Americans, particularly in the South. While longer books on the movement (often cited in the appended bibliographies here) offer more complete accounts of what happened, Aretha’s clearly written, succinct texts introduce significant individuals, follow major actions chronologically, place events within their social context, and comment on their long-term significance. Quotes from participants are used to good effect. Throughout the books, well-captioned photographs (usually black-and-white news photos) introduce the participants and add you-are-there immediacy to the historical account as it unfolds. In Little Rock, Aretha tells how nine courageous black students integrated Central High School despite taunts, threats, and intimidation. Well-focused, useful books for students researching the civil rights movement in mid-twentieth-century America. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan
