Many young people think they’re still too young to play a part in changing the world’s injustices. Elizabeth Eckford learned differently. As a young teenager living in the Arkansas, Elizabeth stood her ground as an angry crowd violently protested her beliefs. What did Elizabeth hope for? Quite simply, an educational institution that would welcome all people -- of all colours. Elizabeth is just one of many young and courageous civil rights crusaders featured in Belinda Rochelle’s Witnesses to Freedom. Young adults will especially appreciate these remarkable stories of valiant American youth.
