Child of the Civil Rights Movement

In this Bank Street College of Education Best Children’s Book of the Year, Paula Young Shelton, daughter of civil rights activist Andrew Young, brings a child’s unique perspective to an important chapter in America’s history. Paula grew up in the Deep South, in a world where white people had and black people did not. With an activist father and a community of leaders surrounding her, including Uncle Martin (Martin Luther King Jr.), Paula watched and listened to the struggles, eventually joining with her family—and thousands of others—in the historic march from Selma to Montgomery.
