Reading The Youngest Marcher

My not-so-little girl reading #TheYoungestMarcher about the American Civil Rights movement in Birmingham, Alabama, to her great grandmother. This book is a wonderful way to introduce kids to the importance of human and civil rights, along with the brave people who disrupted the status quo to fight for the rights. The story of a 9 year old activist named Audrey Faye Hendricks, who spent a week in jail as part of the movement to fill the jails, impeding the police’s ability to arrest agitators. Written by Cynthia Levinson and illustrated by Vanessa Brantley Newton, in our current era of civil unrest, I could not recommend this book strongly enough.
