A fine work of non fiction. Perfect for middle grade readers. ( )
  EmilyRokicki | Feb 26, 2016 |
An accessible, passionate account of this pivotal and tragic period in the Civil Rights Movement. What this informative book needs is a concluding chapter or afterward discussing how the recent dismantling of the 1964 Voting Rights Act by the U.S. Supreme Court has rendered the dangerous work of those fearless Civil Rights works irrelevant and the murders of Michael Schwerner, James Chaney, and Andrew Goodman meaningless.
