Here is an illustrated history of the civil rights movement, written and designed for ages 10 to adult, that clearly and effectively brings the turbulent years of struggle to life, and gives a vivid and powerful experience of what it was like not so very long ago. Provides a brief overview of black history in the US, discussing the civil-rights movement chronologically through stories and photos.

"A sympathetic account that brings these martyrs vividly to life.... Individual accounts of 40 people who lost their lives in the cause. Some were well-known (Evers; Chaney; Goodman and Schwerner), some not...some were activists, some bystanders; some white, but most African-American. Each lucid account, generously illustrated with black and white photos, describes the person's life and relationship to the movement with just the right amount of detail to sustain interest. An excellent photodocumentary resource."--Kirkus Reviews "A moving documentation of key events and lives that contributed to the civil rights movement, Free at Last is chock full of information despite its deceptively simple and inviting presentation.... A must purchase."--VOYA "The publication of Free at Last is especially important to today's teachers, librarians, and parents."--National Black Review "Filled with photographs that strike a chord even in those too young to remember the events...[and] add a personal touch that brings history alive."--The Reading Teacher "A sympathetic account that brings these martyrs vividly to life....
