The Story of the Little Rock Nine and School Desegregation in Photographs

Series: The Story of the Civil Rights Movement in Photographs

By David Aretha

In September 1957, nine brave African-American students attempted to do something that had not been done in the segregated South—integrate a public school. Until 1957, black students could not attend school with white students, and black schools were often inferior to white schools. However, in the face of hatred, protest, and violence, these courageous students, who came to be known as the Little Rock Nine, led the charge for change. Through riveting primary source photographs, author David Aretha examines this critical time in the Civil Rights Movement.

"These informative books are moving photographic displays of the peaks of the civil rights movement."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2014

"The books dramatically carry the reader from early 1963 Birmingham to sit-ins, marches, and protests. Through dramatic photographs along with descriptive captions, the reader feels the raw emotions of the times."

Library Media Connection, November/December 2014

"…the book is dominated by well-written explanatory text…an excellent resource for students studying the civil rights movement."

Book Buzz, July 2014

"The black, white, and red design give the book a slick, professional look...these books nonetheless provide a nuanced, well-organized perspective on the time period."

School Library Journal, August 2014

"Readers or teachers looking for informational texts on the Civil Rights Movement should take a good look at this title for upper elementary students…Well-written text explains the reasons for the event, what led up to it, what transpired, and the results…This title is a stirring example of how a relatively short book can deliver a complex topic."

BayViews, April 2014

"...Aretha’s clearly written, succinct texts introduce significant individuals, follow major actions chronologically, place events within their social context, and comment on their long-term significance. Quotes from participants are used to good effect...Well-focused, useful books for students researching the civil rights movement in mid-twentieth-century America."
