Nobody Gonna Turn Me 'Round: Stories and Songs of the Civil Rights Movement

Nobody Gonna Turn Me 'Round: Stories and Songs of the Civil Rights Movement Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A powerful trilogy concludes with a look at both famous and lesser-known forces in the ongoing struggle for civil rights.

In the summer of 1955, Moses Wright braved mortal danger to testify against three white men accused of murdering Emmett Till — a brutal event that helped to spur the American civil rights movement. Nine black teenagers in Little Rock, Arkansas, headed out to a formerly white high school, despite warnings that "blood will run in the streets." James Lawson trained activists not to fight back with fists or words, no matter how many billy clubs rained down on them. Through ten turbulent years, black southerners filled jails and public places with the songs and strength passed down from their ancestors. This final book in a trilogy about the African-American experience is a tribute to the crusaders for equality and peace in America, a crusade that continues to this day.

Synopsis:

A powerful trilogy that includes "No More!" and "Free at Last!" concludes with a look at both famous and lesser-known forces in the ongoing struggle for civil rights. Illustrations.
