Love Is Loud: How Diane Nash Led the Civil Rights Movement

Diane Nash grew up in the southside of Chicago in the 1940s. As a university student, she visited the Tennessee State Fair in 1959. Shocked to see a bathroom sign that read For Colored Women, Diane learned that segregation in the South went beyond schools — it was part of daily life. She decided to fight back, not with anger or violence, but with strong words of truth and action. Finding a group of like-minded students, including student preacher John Lewis, Diane took command of the Nashville Movement.

They sat at the lunch counters where only white people were allowed and got arrested, day after day. Leading thousands of marchers to the courthouse, Diane convinced the mayor to integrate lunch counters. Then, she took on the Freedom Rides to integrate bus travel, garnering support from Martin Luther King Jr. and then the president himself — John F. Kennedy. This illuminating picture book introduces young readers to one of the strongest voices of the Civil Rights Movement in a powerful tribute to this courageous leader.
