" A very good book on the Civil Rights Movement. I love that it was organized by year. It had many pictures and some information I had not previously seen or read in the many other books on the movement I have studied. It gives a nice overview of the major events between 1959 and 1965. I also really appreciated the inclusion of copies of the front pages of newspapers, as well as the full text versions of the related articles. " said.

" I really wanted to like this Civil Rights memoir by the NPR personality, but I just found it so, so boring. " said.

" Written for middle school and young adult readers. " said.

" I really like the way this book incorporates New York Times articles and actual pictures of the times. Very interesting. I don't know if they did this on purpose or if it's just cheap paper but I also liked how the pages of this book even feel like your reading a newspaper. " said.

" Acclaimed NPR journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault gives a vivid and inspiring account of how she “stood on the shoulders of giants” in fulfilling her own significant role in the Civil Rights movement. Read my review at Books of Wonder & Wisdom " said.

"Award -winning Journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault uses the Inauguration of President Obama to examine the giants on whose shoulders he has stood; among them, her very own. An intimate look at the Civil Rights movement through Hunter-Gault's eyes and personal experiences as one of two Black students admitted to all-white Georgia University. I am forever grateful to people such as Hunter-Gault for sharing their candid experiences with the rest of the world. A powerful account complete with archival photographs. A must for any classroom library." said.
