Book Overview

Relive the moments when African Americans fought for equal rights, and made history.

Even though slavery had ended in the 1860s, African Americans were still suffering under the weight of segregation a hundred years later. They couldn't go to the same schools, eat at the same restaurants, or even use the same bathrooms as white people. But by the 1950s, black people refused to remain second-class citizens and were willing to risk their lives to make a change.

Author Sherri L. Smith brings to life momentous events through the words and stories of people who were on the frontlines of the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s.

This book also features the fun black-and-white illustrations and engaging 16-page photo insert that readers have come love about the What Was? series

   Promoting division (BLM, George Floyd, Brianna Taylor)
My children love reading books in the series Who Is What Was. The author could not leave it just at the teaching of factual history. No, they had to bring in current events, where they vilify criminals and a Marxist organization and kill police officers as a whole as murderers.
   What a terrific, instructive, enlightening book
I liked the brisk, precise pace of writing and the absence of distracting detail. I recommend this to anyone who wants to be brought up to date on the history of the American Civil Rights movement. I chose this rating because I learned a lot in a short and enjoyable reading time.
   Promoting racism with woke ideology
It is a shame that we can not trust the books What Is '' with this woken ideology that under the cover of “anti-racism ” creates more division in our young.
   Wonderful books.
I have a lot of these books : Who is and what is for my son, he loves them. And it explains it where kids can understand what happened.
