Publisher's Summary

A memoir of the civil rights movement from one of its youngest heroes
A Sibert Informational Book Medal Honor Book
Kirkus Best Books of 2015

Booklist Editors' Choice 2015
BCCB Blue Ribbon 2015
As the youngest marcher in the 1965 voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Albama, Lynda Blackmon Lowery proved that young adults can be heroes. Jailed nine times before her 15th birthday, Lowery fought alongside Martin Luther King Jr. for the rights of African Americans. In this memoir she shows today's young listeners what it means to fight nonviolently (even when the police are using violence, as in the Bloody Sunday protest) and how it felt to be part of changing American history.
Straightforward and inspiring, this memoir brings listeners into the middle of the civil rights movement, complementing Common Core classroom learning and bringing history alive for young listeners.
