The Teachers March!
How Selma's Teachers Changed History
A Junior Library Guild selection
STUNNINGLY POWERFUL … The Wallaces pack their account with well-researched details so that readers get to know Reverend Reese and others as people as well as activists, and Palmer’s vibrant acrylic paintings intensify the urgency of the moment ... The marching teachers inspired other groups—beauticians, barbers, undertakers—to organize, but most significantly, they inspired students to participate. A timely testament to the power of collectivism and the continued need for widespread civic engagement.Booklist (starred review)
