School Library Journal - Cathy DeCampli, Haddonfield Public Library, NJ

"While their stories failed to capture the attention of mainstream history books, their contributions led to later, greater achievements. This series helps place the well-known civil rights victories in a larger narrative, broken up by large images and text boxes with interesting facts. . . . Civil rights victories didn’t come easily, and this series helps young readers understand that. ­Recommended." - School Library Journal
