What is the Civil Rights Movement? / by Sherri L. Smith ; illustrated by Tim Foley.

Smith, Sherri L., (author.). Foley, Tim, 1962- (illustrator.).


"Even though slavery had ended in the 1860s, African Americans were still suffering under the weight of segregation a hundred years later. They couldn't go to the same schools, eat at the same restaurants, or even use the same bathrooms as white people. But by the 1950s, black people refused to remain second-class citizens and were willing to risk their lives to make a change"-- Provided by publisher.
