From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-6 --A readable and attractive photo essay recounting the struggle for civil rights in the U. S. Haskins's clearly written text and archival black-and-white photographs trace the long, hard road to equal rights for African-Americans from the earliest days of the slave trade; through the desegregation battles; to The Day Martin Luther King, Jr., Was Shot , which Haskins cites as the ``end of the civil rights era.'' Brief accounts of brave individuals, both black and white, are included: abolitionists; students who integrated Central High School in Little Rock in 1957; demonstrators who sat-in at a lunch counter in Greensboro in 1960; civil right workers who were murdered in Mississippi in 1964; and many, many more. This excellent overview can be read from cover to cover and may lead readers to more detailed texts such as Altman's Extraordinary Black Americans from Colonial to Contemporary Times (Childrens, 1989) and Hornsby's Chronology of African American History (Gale, 1991). The photographs alone make it a must purchase. --Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
