Freedom Summer Set in the American South in the early 1960's, this picture book portrays the reactions of best friends - Joe is white, John Henry is black - to the new laws forbidding segregation. After the two boys race to the town swimming pool to take advantage of the new freedoms, they find that racist practices are not so easily outlawed. The story looks at events of the civil rights era through the eyes of two children in a way that brings history to life.
