Seeds of Freedom: The Peaceful Integration of Huntsville, Alabama - Hester Bass, E. B. Lewis

According to author Hester Bass and illustrator E.B. Lewis, the sleepy town of Huntsville, Alabama, held the Seeds of Freedom (Candlewick, $16.99) that flowered in the Civil Rights movement. Pitting their desire for equality against the militant hatred of Governor Wallace, the black residents of Huntsville peacefully moved the town toward integration. The courage of college students at lunch counter sit-ins, the voices of the men and women protesting on the steps of the courthouse, and the ingenuity of an Easter shopping boycott are all rendered in Bass’s declarative text and Lewis’s luscious watercolors. Ages 7-10. Sharat Buddhavarapu
