Five books about Black History month

From the Barnes & Noble Review, one of five books "for young readers that bring African-American history alive:"
Marching for Freedom: Walk Together, Children, and Don't You Grow Weary
by Elizabeth Partridge

Aimed at the preteen set, award-winner Partridge takes readers to Selma, Alabama, in 1965, the heart of the early civil-rights movement. Packed with stirring photographs, the book follows a group of courageous children who march with Martin Luther King, Jr. in hopes of gaining blacks the right to vote.
Read about the other books on the list.
