Explore the progress of civil rights in America in the 20th Century by learning about some famous Virginians. Maggie Lena Walker was the first African-American woman to be president of a chartered bank in America. Harry F. Byrd Sr. opposed the post-World War II push for desegregation by crafting the South's "Massive Resistance" strategy. When that failed, people of color such as Arthur Ashe benefitted! This funny, colorful graphic novel will excite reluctant readers, prepare students for standardized tests in history and help homeschooling parents!
