Product Description

Relive the moments when African Americans fought for equal rights, and made history.

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.

Author Sherri L. Smith brings to life momentous events through the words and stories of people who were on the frontlines of the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s.

This book also features the fun black-and-white illustrations and engaging 16-page photo insert that readers have come love about the What Was? series! 5.31"W x 7.61"H x 0.26"D | 5 oz | 60 per carton On sale Dec 29, 2020 | 112 Pages | 978-1-5247-9230-5 Age 8-12 years | Grades 3-7 Reading Level: Lexile 840L | Fountas & Pinnell X
