Back of Book: This empowering and emotionally driven story showcases significant moments in African American history that tie back to the Lincoln Memorial by introducing iconic civil rights activists as well as exploring President Abraham Lincoln’s role in abolishing slavery. This book highlights the hardships and triumphs faced while fighting for racial equality in America.
My Review:
I remember walking up the steps to the Lincoln Memorial. There was something unexplainable about the feeling that overcomes you as you take each stair. The history that has been made in that place is astounding. I loved each topic that was discussed in this story. Each page gives readers detailed information about different people who helped the Civil Rights Movement. This book celebrates the changes that have happened over the years. This book inspires readers to make a difference while still remembering those who have already walked the path before us. I plan on adding this book to my Civil Rights reading lit.
