The Story of the Civil Rights Movement in Photographs series offers relatively short, fully illustrated introductions to major events of the 1950s and 1960s that furthered the cause of justice for African Americans, particularly in the South. While longer books on the movement (often cited in the appended bibliographies here) offer more complete accounts of what happened, Aretha’s clearly written, succinct texts introduce significant individuals, follow major actions chronologically, place events within their social context, and comment on their long-term significance. Quotes from participants are used to good effect. Throughout the books, well-captioned photographs (usually black-and-white news photos) introduce the participants and add you-are-there immediacy to the historical account as it unfolds. In Little Rock, Aretha tells how nine courageous black students integrated Central High School despite taunts, threats, and intimidation. Well-focused, useful books for students researching the civil rights movement in mid-twentieth-century America. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan
