Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Journey to Freedom: The African American Library from School Library Journal on October 1, 2004

Cover: The Civil Rights Movement

This attractively designed volume begins with a discussion of the birth and evolution of the movement and explains key concepts in context. While the ideas are sometimes complex, the explanations are concise without being overwhelming. Going beyond the deaths of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcom X, and Medger Evers, this book also includes information about Black Power and the Black Panthers, and their views and strategies for achieving equal rights.

—Focus on Black History
