The history of civil rights in America has come a long way since men but not women, free men but not slaves, were granted certain rights by our Constitution. Walk in the footsteps of our nation”s founding fathers. Learn about the civil rights all Americans share and the responsibilities that go along with them. This book for young readers will introduce students to the rights many of us take for granted. Learn how protesters past and present (including some students who have refused to say the Pledge of Allegiance) have fought to guarantee our civil rights and protect the U.S. Constitution.
