The Story of the Selma Voting Rights Marches in Photographs

Series: The Story of the Civil Rights Movement in Photographs

By David Aretha

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a momentous victory for civil rights activists. But one major obstacle remained in the path toward equal rights for African Americans: the right to vote. In the South, segregationists prevented African Americans from voting. Civil rights leaders believed it was time for strong action and chose Selma, Alabama, as the rallying point. There, the marches and protests captured the nation’s attention. Through gripping primary source photographs, author David Aretha explores this important time in American history.

"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 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

"...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."
