The Little Rock Nine Challenge Segregation: Courageous Kids of the Civil Rights Movement

by Myra Faye Turner
Illustrated by Dolo Okecki

In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that schools had to allow Black students to attend previously all-white schools. On September 4, 1957, nine Black students were set to attend Little Rock Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas. But when they arrived, an angry mob of white people spat at them and hurled racist insults. They were also prevented from entering the school by the National Guard. After they were finally allowed in weeks later, they faced even more abuse from white students and staff. Discover the courage displayed by the Little Rock Nine as they fought to get an education while enduring terrible racism.

Reviews

School Library Journal - Margaret Nunes, former Librarian, Gwinnett County Public Library, GA

"Colorful drawings tell the story as much as the text and will attract visual learners. The information provided is good and the detailed narratives in Ruby Bridges and The Little Rock Nine are engrossing; readers will anxiously turn the pages to see how events unfold. . . . Given the graphic form of these books along with perennial classroom topics, these books should do well in libraries and attract those who like the pictures to inform as well as the text." - School Library Journal

Booklist - Julia Smith

"Folks who think that graphic novels don’t hold as much content as traditional texts have another thing coming with the Courageous Kids series. These new entries examine the lives of brave young people in history while providing ample context for the events and social conditions each had to confront." - Booklist
