A Documentary Novel of the Landmark Civil Rights Case

Amazon.com Rating:

In 1955, in Caroline County, Virginia, amidst segregation and prejudice, injustice and cruelty, two teenagers fell in love. Their life together broke the law, but their determination would change it. Richard and Mildred Loving were at the heart of a Supreme Court case that legalized marriage between races, and a story of the devoted couple who faced discrimination, fought it, and won.

From acclaimed author Patricia Hruby Powell comes the story of a landmark civil rights case, told in spare and gorgeous verse.

Description

"Written in free verse, this docu-novel alternates perspectives between Richard and Mildred. News clippings, maps, and archival photos add immediacy and context, as do Strickland's moving illustrations, in the style of 'visual journalism,' which she explains in an appended note. The volume also features a time line of relevant events and an appended summary of the Lovings' lives after the case." -- Kristin Anderson, School Library Journal
