From Booklist:

This slim overview of the civil rights movement, part of the African American History series, hits the most important events of the 1950s and 1960s, but more care could have been taken with the details. The book begins by defining civil rights and then moves to a brief history of African Americans in the U.S. Glancing at the way World War II affected segregation, more time is then spent on Brown v. Board of Education, Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott, sit-ins, freedom riders, groups like the NAACP and SNCC, and the role of the government in making sure laws were both passed and obeyed. Black-and-white and color photographs are well-chosen, though sometimes poorly cropped. Some captions are confusing; one makes the vague claim that public places and lunch counters were segregated “for several years.” The writing is overly broad at times, though certainly fact-filled. Activities, a glossary, and pointers to a few books and Web sites are appended. Grades 5-8. --Ilene Cooper
