About This Book
This interesting book covers a part of American history dealing with segregation and the struggle to equalize educational conditions for blacks and whites. The end of "separate but equal" treatment came about after the Supreme Court voted in favor of the NAACP in "Brown v. Board of Education."
Authoritative and up-to-date, "Cornerstones of Freedom, Second Series" is an exceptional and indispensable resource for middle-grade readers.
