Reviews

School Library Connection - Rich Parker, Media Specialist, Fox Chapel Elementary School, Germantown, Marylan

"STARRED REVIEW! Few would deny that the powerful words spoken and television news images were deciding factors in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. This series does a magnificent job in bringing these elements together within compelling narratives. . . .Highly Recommended." - School Library Connection

Literacy Daily - Karen Hildebrand, retired library media specialist at Dempsey Middle School in O

"Through archival photographs, newspaper accounts, quotes from white and African American civil rights workers, politicians, or eyewitnesses, these primary sources make this period of American history become real." - Literacy Daily

School Library Journal, "A Voting Rights Bookshelf" - Caitlin Augusta

"...this series provides students with valuable primary source material. It also serves struggling middle school readers; vocabulary is defined in context, clear captions accompany photographs, and related information in sidebars serve to break up the text. Together the books weave a chronological narrative of the civil rights movement. The parallels drawn between the historical events and their present-day significance will encourage readers to view the movement from a broader perspective." - School Library Journal, "A Voting Rights Bookshelf"
