In 1963 Birmingham, Alabama, thousands of African American children volunteered to march for their civil rights after hearing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speak. They protested the laws that kept black people separate from white people. Facing fear, hate, and danger, these children used their voices to change the world. Frank Morrison's emotive oil-on-canvas paintings bring this historical event to life, while Monica Clark-Robinson's moving and poetic words document this remarkable time.

A children's book that actually brought tears to my eyes. To think that this happened in my time in the U.S. A profound book that needs to be shared with all children.

I really liked the illustrations in Let the Children March. I think the words and the illustrations pair great together. I also enjoyed the additional facts and information provided.

Such a wonderful book ... my 7-year-old read it and it sparked questions he had and a good conversation. The illustrations really make the story resonate, as well.
