about

I couldn't play on the same playground as the white kids. I couldn't go to their schools. I couldn't drink from their water fountains. There were so many things I couldn't do. In 1963 Birmingham, Alabama, thousands of African American children volunteered to march for their civil rights after hearing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speak. They protested the laws that kept black people separate from white people. Facing fear, hate, and danger, these children used their voices to change the world. Frank Morrison's emotive oil-on-canvas paintings bring this historical event to life, while Monica Clark-Robinson's moving and poetic words document this remarkable time.
Monica Clark-Robinson is passionate about stories - writing them, acting them out on stage, and reading them. She believes that the stories of our past can help us create the story for our future. She lives in Arkansas with her family.

Editorial Reviews

? A powerful retrospective glimpse at a key event." -Kirkus, starred review ? "Much of the text will provoke questions and important conversations between children and adult readers. The experiences of segregation are sensitively depicted? A highly readable historical account which deserves a place on picture book and nonfiction shelves alike.- School Library Journal, starred review "This remarkable story remains relevant today as young readers think about their roles in the ongoing struggle for justice. Teachers who use this book might scaffold it with additional resources that teach about the intensive planning and organization that went into this and other activist campaigns." - Booklist " The art throughout is a vibrant representation of the determination and courage of the civil rights movement. A nuanced account that could inspire the youngest readers to make a big difference." - Horn Book " Clark-Robinson's stirring debut unfolds through the resolute voice of a (fictional) African-American girl participating in the 1963 Children's Crusade? The narrator's conclusion, "Our march made the difference," serves as a powerful reminder for today's readers about their own ability to fight for justice and equality." - Publisher's Weekly "
