Description

Combining clear text with fascinating archival black-and-white photographs, acclaimed author Haskins, whose many histories include several Coretta Scott King Honor Books, illuminates the history of the Civil Rights Movement for young readers. His account begins long before the infamous day of the title, explaining that from the earliest days of the slave trade, African Americans have struggled for their freedom. By focusing on the individuals, both black and white, who worked bravely to achieve equal rights, Haskins draws children into the heart of the fight at every stage. Among those profiled are early abolitionists, the students who integrated Little Rock's Central High School in 1957, the participants at the lunch counter sit-in in Greensboro in 1960, the civil rights workers who were murdered in Mississippi in 1964, and of course Martin Luther King Jr. himself.

Sure to fascinate children who will read it from beginning to end, The Day Martin Luther King, Jr., Was Shot can also be used as a valuable classroom resource and research tool.
