Freedom Walkers
"The Story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott"

Written by Russell Freedman

Freedom Walkers is an invaluable resource for anyone who wishes to gain insight into the event that essentially began the Civil Rights movement in the United States. It is the story of not only the most famous participants, but also, the lesser known heroes who aided in the fight to promote civil liberties. The story is enhanced by powerful black and white photographs that help the reader understand this most important era in our history. The reading level is appropriate for children age 9 to 12. However, this resource would be a wonderful tool for older readers studying our history. Winner of the Simon Wiesenthal Center's 2007 Once Upon a World Children's Book Award.
