Black and White: The Confrontation of Reverence Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Eugene "Bull" Connor Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the nineteen fifties and early sixties, Birmingham, Alabama, became known as Bombingham. At the center of this violent time in the fight for civil rights, and standing at opposite ends, were Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Eugene "Bull" Connor. From his pulpit, Shuttlesworth agitated for racial equality, while Commissioner Connor fought for the status quo. Relying on court documents, police and FBI reports, newspapers, interviews, and photographs, author Larry Dane Brimner first covers each man's life and then brings them together to show how their confrontation brought about significant change to the southern city. The author worked closely with Birmingham's Civil Rights Institute as well as with Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and his wife to bring together this Robert F. Sibert Honor Book, ALA Notable Childrens book, and Kirkus Reviews Best Childrens Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

Bayard Rustin dedicated his life to helping others—fighting injustices and discriminations—so that people could live as one. Protesting segregation long before there was a civil rights movement, he often was arrested for his beliefs and actions. As a nonviolent activist, Bayard made his mark working alongside many African American leaders, notably A. Philip Randolph and Martin Luther King, Jr. As an organizer, Bayard was largely responsible for bringing people together to walk for freedom and jobs in Washington, D.C., on that memorable summer day, August 28, 1963. With style and careful attention to history, Larry Dane Brimner captures a story of passion, courage, and triumph through Bayard's own words and archival photographs in this Jane Addams Children's Book Award winner.

Synopsis:

A riveting account of the racially-charged events that shook Birmingham, AL in the '50's and '60's, focusing on the lives and interactions of two key figures: Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth, pastor of the Bethel Baptist church and founder of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and Eugune Bull Conner, city commissioner and segregationist. Following the critical success of Birmingham Sunday, noted author Larry Dane Brimner weaves together a plethora of primary source archival material to create a fascination portrait of American Civil Right history: oral histories, court documents, police and FBI reports, newspaper clippings, and interviews with Rev. Shuttlesworth and his wife.
