This book is so well-written and gorgeously illustrated. My favorite line: 'As the first American astronaut circles in orbit around the Earth, black men, women and children circle around the courthouse, wearing signs that say things like I Ordered a Hamburger. They Served Me a Warrant!' The book really brings home how farsighted, and how shortsighted, humanity can be... how far we have come, and how much farther we have to go. Find this book in our catalog!
