Booklist Online - Angela Leeper

"Throughout the accessible text, direct quotes from those involved in both sides of the debate and black-and-white photos from the time period introduce younger students to primary sources. . . .This historic moment when the teens arrived at Central High School on September 4, 1957, is described, bolstered by newspaper accounts and quotes from the students themselves. A concluding chapter follows the students’ first year and assesses their impact." - Booklist Online

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

School Library Journal - Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NC

"First-person accounts from white and African American activists, protesters, politicians, and eyewitnesses are woven into the text of this informative series on the civil rights movement. . . .The illustrations are revelatory and sometimes chilling. . . .An ideal purchase." - School Library Journal

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"
