Mention the Civil Rights era in Alabama, and most people recall images of terrible violence. But something different was happening in Huntsville. For the citizens of that city, creativity, courage, and cooperation were the keys to working together to integrate their city and schools in peace. In an engaging celebration of this lesser-known chapter in American and African-American history, author Hester Bass and illustrator E. B. Lewis show children how racial discrimination, bullying, and unfairness can be faced successfully with perseverance and ingenuity.

It's nice to know that at least one town in the South had a mostly peaceful transition to integration during the Civil Rights Movement.
This is a great read for children and adults alike to remember this time in history. And maybe it will plant more seeds of freedom and peace at a time when struggles are still occurring.
