A Graphic History of the Civil Rights Movement

This exciting graphic novel intertwines two tales to illuminate events leading up to this dramatic episode in US history. One is the story of African Americans' long struggle for equal rights following the Civil War. The other is the account of the personal struggles and triumphs of Thurgood Marshall, the African American lawyer who argued the case before the Supreme Court. Accessible text and lively illustrations engage readers and help them experience the drama of events as if they were there.
