Description: When the Supreme Court decision to desegregate public schools was handed down in 1954, the course of American history was forever changed. Brown v. Board of Education affected the life of every child in the United States and elicited emotions ranging from joy, relief, and gratitude to fear, anger, and resentment. Here are personal reflections, stories, and poems from ten of today's most accomplished writers for children, all young people themselves at the time of the Brown v. Board of Education decision. Included are pieces by Michael Cart, Jean Craighead George, Eloise Greenfield, Lois Lowry, Katherine Paterson, Ishmael Reed, Jerry Spinelli, Joyce Carol Thomas, Quincy Troupe, and Leona Nicholas Welch. Their collected experiences and viewpoints offer a multifaceted window into the world of 1954. With a compelling introduction by editor Joyce Carol Thomas and outstanding pastel artwork by Curtis James, this collection celebrates the hard-earned promise of equality in education. Book jacket.
