She Stood For Freedom: The Untold Story of a Civil Rights Hero, Joan Trumpauer Mulholland (Middle Grade)

Amazon.com Rating:

Joan Trumpauer Mulholland was a white teenager in the South during Segregation who put herself on the front lines of the Civil Rights struggle. She attended demonstrations and sit-ins and was one of the Freedom Riders in 1961 who was arrested and put on death row for months at the notorious Parchman Penitentiary. She was the first white person to join in the 1963 Woolworth s lunch counter sit-ins in Jackson, Mississippi, and that same year participated in the March on Washington with Dr. Martin Luther King and the Selma to Montgomery march in 1965 which contributed to the passage of the landmark Voting Rights Act that year. Her willingness to stand up for justice has been an inspiration.

This is the first biography about her experiences, published simultaneously in picture book and middle grade editions. The middle grade edition uses collage art and historical photographs, and features sidebar commentary from Joan, reflecting on those years. It also includes riveting primary source documents from Joan's personal archives.

For the picture book edition for readers ages 6 to 9, check out She Stood For Freedom (Picture Book).
