Nobody Gonna Turn Me 'Round: Stories and Songs of the Civil Rights

Doreen Rappaport (A) and Shane W. Evans (ILT)

List Price: $9.99 (Paperback- African American History / Civil Rights Era - 2006)

Description: In the summer of 1955, Moses Wright braved mortal danger to testify against three white men accused of murdering Emmett Till - a brutal event that helped to spur the American civil rights movement. Nine black teenagers in Little Rock, Arkansas, headed out to a formerly white high school, despite warnings that blood will run in the streets. James Lawson trained activists not to fight back with fists or words, no matter how many billy clubs rained down on them. Through ten turbulent years, black southerners filled jails and public places with the songs and strength passed down from their ancestors. This final book in a trilogy about the African-American experience is a tribute to the crusaders for equality (64 pgs) Ages 9-12

Ashay says, "Excellent, excellent in content and illustration. Great collaboration between Doreen Rappaport and Shane Evans. With such fine literature, kids will understand the struggle of yesterday and today. Their first two books include Free At Last!: Stories and Songs of Emancipation and No More: Stories and Songs of Slave Resistance. Must have for your library."
