Book Review: Claudette Colvin: Twice Towards Justice

Today we recommend: Claudette Colvin: Twice Towards Justice by Philip M. Hoose.

claudettePresents the life of the Alabama teenager who played an integral but little-known role in the Montgomery bus strike of 1955-1956, once by refusing to give up a bus seat, and again, by becoming a plaintiff in the landmark civil rights case against the bus company.
This book offers an engaging look at an almost unknown figure from the Civil Rights movement. This is a fairly long book but there are loads of pictures. Particularly nice are the sections of the books that are told from Claudette’s point of view. This book can be found in the Juvenile Nonfiction section at j323.09 HOO.
