More recommended reads for sharing with children about Civil Rights
If you are looking for more books that you can share with your kids to help them understand the Civil Rights era--books that can also provide insights into the challenges we are facing today--the site linked below provides age appropriate recommendations along with detailed descriptions of books that depict the civil rights movement and era in ways that are meaningful for kids.
While we currently have just a few of the titles on the list, I encourage you to explore offerings at our public libraries. Many of these books can be found in e-book format as well as in traditional print.

"These stories help the reader to understand the widespread and legal segregation and discrimination practices of the time, and also bring to life the heroism of those who fought to change the system."
