Synopsis

These Hands by Margaret H. Mason

Joseph's grandpa could do almost anything with his hands. He could play the piano, throw a curveball, and tie a triple bowline knot in three seconds flat. But in the 1950s and 60s, he could not bake bread at the Wonder Bread factory. Factory bosses said white people would not want to eat bread touched by the hands of the African Americans who worked there.

Reviews

Floyd Cooper is a four-time recipient of the Coretta Scott King Honor. For all the many titles that appear on segregation and protest for younger readers, this one stands tall not just for delving into a piece of labor history not previously covered, but for its ability to relate history with heart and resonance. --Kirkus, starred review . . . stirring pictures celebrate the historic civil rights and union protests that brought attention to the issue . . . The story's roots in rarely told history will widen the audience for this moving title to older readers, too. --Booklist It's a moving study of multigenerational relationships and triumph over discrimination. --Publishers Weekly
