Image for Seeds Of Freedom : The Peaceful Integration Of Huntsville, Alabama

Seeds Of Freedom : The Peaceful Integration Of Huntsville, Alabama

by Hester Bass; E. B. Lewis (Illustrator)


Explore a little-known story of the civil rights movement, in which black and white citizens in one Alabama city worked together nonviolently to end segregation.

Mention the civil rights era in Alabama, and most people recall images of terrible violence. But something different was happening in Huntsville. For the citizens of that city, creativity, courage, and cooperation were the keys to working together to integrate their city and schools in peace. In an engaging celebration of this lesser-known chapter in American and African-American history, author Hester Bass and illustrator E. B. Lewis show children how racial discrimination, bullying, and unfairness can be faced successfully with perseverance and ingenuity.
