This is the third book of Doreen Rappaport's trilogy about the long march to freedom of African Americans (first two books are: 'No More! Stories and Songs of Slave Resistance' and 'Free at Last! Stories and Songs of Emancipation'). Covering the period of the civil rights movement of the 50's and 60's it brings together many true accounts of individuals who resisted racism and discrimination and describes how their protests and acts of civil disobedience sparked a mass movement that challenged segregation and unjust laws. Shane W. Evans contributes dramatic full-page colour illustration and the narrative includes many of the songs and poems that inspired and helped unite the movement.
