Thankfully, you can't grow up in Birmingham without learning quite a bit about the Civil Rights Movement. We're especially well-schooled on the string of tragedies and braveries that happened in our city and state.

But somehow, one important piece of information often doesn't come up: the majority of people who were arrested in nonviolent protests in the pivotal year of 1963 were children.

Levinson's book follows the events of 1963 by tracing the activity of four black students who became involved in the nonviolent movement for freedom and civil rights. Reading it in 2013, their courage seems almost unheard-of.

For an inspiring look at local history that changed the country, this is a great read. ( )

Told from the primary point of view of 4 youths in the Children's March, the book may have been better serviced in focusing on one or two perspectives as the primary narrators. There is so much to read and enjoy, but there is such a thing as overload which undermines the beauty of the event, all painstakingly real. ( )

Tells the story of the Children's March in Birmingham during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's, from the perspective of 4 adults who were children at the time. An honest, brutal, and uplifting account of the pivotal role of Birmingham's African American children in the Civil Rights Movement.

This book is in a space where there are a lot of existing texts (as there should be) but what it adds is the role of young people as activists in the civil rights movement. I found it particularly interesting that the march on Birmingham happened before Miranda v. Arizona, so these children were often uniformed about their rights. They stood up for what they believed despite their fears. Levinson asks "How often do you get to meet your heroes?" The people in her book are certainly worthy of the title. ( )

Narrated by Ervin Ross. The author interviewed four adults who were involved in civil rights protests in Birmingham, Alabama, as teenagers. Through their recollections and the author's research, it is quite a story of the fight against injustice and for equality. For children to step up where adults feared to tread was pretty amazing. There was nobility in the protest, but ugliness, too, as several people, including Wash chose to act violently, against civil rights leaders' wishes. Ross narrates in a terse, factual tone befitting the history. Excerpts of recorded interviews are included. ( )
