Women & The Civil Rights Movement - Standing Up for Change ebook by Arlisha R. Norwood
In the 20th century, African American women formed the backbone of the modern Civil Rights Movement. They were the critical mass, the grassroots leaders challenging America to embrace justice and equality for all. This e-book discusses women’s critical roles in the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Little Rock’s Central High School integration, and the little-known women behind the scenes of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Readers in 4th through 8th grade will enjoy exploring the Civil Rights Movement through the women who lived it.
