Because They Marched: The People's Campaign for Voting Rights That Changed America - Russell Freedman

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the march for voting rights from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, Russell Freedman has crafted a compelling history of that movement and the freedoms we gained Because They Marched (Holiday House, $20). Freedman depicts the hard work that went into the slow progression from social injustice to legal victory, focusing primarily on Selma, but giving insight into how communities across America moved to address the issues of economic and civil injustices. This book provides a great launching pad for discussing how these issues are still relevant today.  Ages 10-14. SB
