Synopsis

Miles to Go for Freedom by Linda Barrett Osborne

This book chronicles the lives of Black Americans from the years 1896 until 1954. It discusses the forces leading to legal segregation; specific segregation laws, federal policy and segregation on a national level; and, early efforts to achieve civil rights. Through photographs and other images, primary sources, and first person accounts, it also looks at the impact of legal segregation on day-to-day life for both black and white Americans, across the country, not just the South and North, particularly from a young person's point of view. The book is distinguished by the Library of Congress' involvement and is a companion of sorts to Linda's previous book Travelling the Freedom Road , which looked at the lives of black Americans from 1800 to 1877. The book includes a timeline, bibliography, and an index.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
