Product Details

Praise

* “This behind-the-scenes story of the people and events leading to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education‘s Supreme Court decision shows that even if the justice sought may be simple, getting it is long and complicated….A rich, compelling story of the many people who stood up to racial inequality, risking significant danger and hardship for the cause of justice. (photos, timeline, bibliography, source notes, index) Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review   

* “In a highly readable narrative, this title tells the story of the monumental 1954 Supreme Court decision that mandated desegregation in public schools in the United States…..The book demystifies this legal journey and puts a face to it by profiling the young student plaintiffs, their brave and determined parents, and, in particular, Thurgood Marshall, the lead lawyer for the NAACP and the driving force behind the legal struggle for desegregation. These personal stories, as well as other interesting details and descriptions, make for an approachable and easily digestible account that succeeds in bringing history to life…. VERDICT An engaging and thorough take on an important topic, this is a first purchase for middle school U.S. history collections.” School Library Journal, Starred Review
