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

"This is a book about people; people who voiced their support or opposition to ending segregation or continuing the unfair practice. . . .Young students will observe through quotes and archival photographs about the Civil Rights Movement and the stories behind the people who made it happen as opposed to those who did all in their power to prevent any kind of integration or equal rights." - Literacy Daily

"Using primary source quotes and historical photographs, this accessible series introduces readers to important figures, dates, and events related to the Civil Rights movement. . . .The powerful, archival photos are sure to draw readers’ attention, successfully capturing the intensity of emotions and acts of violence.

School Library Journal

"...ideal for those looking to bulk up their coverage of these topics. Heavy with quotes from those directly involved, the books balance both sides (activist Rosa Parks presented along with bus driver James Blake). Tons of relevant photos...break up the text and immerse readers in the period. Solid purchases." - 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"
