A memoir of the Civil Rights Movement from one of its youngest heroes. As the youngest marcher in the 1965 voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Albama, Lynda Blackmon Lowery proved that young adults can be heroes. Jailed nine times before her fifteenth birthday, Lowery fought alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. for the rights of African-Americans. In this memoir, she shows today's young readers what it means to fight nonviolently (even when the police are using violence, as in the Bloody Sunday protest) and how it felt to be part of changing American history. Straightforward and inspiring, this beautifully illustrated memoir brings readers into the middle of the Civil Rights Movement, complementing Common Core classroom learning and bringing history alive for young readers.… (mere)

A first-person account of the 1965 Selma Voting Rights March as seen through the eyes of a brave 15-year-old determined to make a difference.

Great middle grade first-hand account of what it was like to participate in the Civil Rights Movement, and the audio is simply fantastic. ( )

This book is exactly what the reader would expect and more. This book outlines the life of Lynda Blackmon Lowery by her own voice. Though it is written by others, Lynda Blackmon Lowery tells her story to the writers. This book is not only historical and informative, it allows for the reader to open their heart and mind from the events that occurred years ago. It is understandable for a middle grades child and would allow for wonderful information to be taught and knowledge to be gained. ( )

I enjoyed this memoir of the marches in Selma very much. It doesn't give much background information, so you'll need to get that elsewhere, but it's powerful to read her story. The artwork is a nice blend of art and historical photographs. It's a much shorter story than it appears, so it would work well as a read aloud in a classroom. ( )

Narrated by Damaras Obi.The author shares her story of marching in the 1965 voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery, AL. She had been active in the civil rights movement since she was 13 and acting as a “gopher” for the older kids who staged sit-ins. She was inspired after attending Dr. King’s speech in church to march for voting rights. She participated in several marches and was jailed a number of times. She marched in what became known as Bloody Sunday. Angry with Governor George Wallace for not protecting the marchers, Lynda is determined to join Dr. King’s march to Montgomery. Obi reads with an urgent intensity that makes this story accessible for young listeners and keeps the civil rights movement relevant today. ( )
