Item description for Oh, Freedom!: Kids Talk about the Civil Rights Movement with the People Who Made It Happen by Casey King & Linda Barrett Osborne...

Interviews between young people and people who took part in the civil rights movement accompany essays that describe the history of efforts to make equality a reality for African Americans.

Publishers Description
Now in paperback--a personal look at the civil rights movement of the 1950s and '60s told through dozens of interviews conducted by Washington, D.C., fourth graders with their parents, grandparents, neighbors, and others who helped fight the battle against segregation and changed the course of history. With a foreword by Rosa Parks, three introductory essays, and over 40 archival photographs, this thoughtful, compelling, and educational book pays tribute to the many ordinary people who dedicated themselves to the cause of freedom and the fight for equality.
"This book is important for the stories it tells, the pictures it shows, and especially for its prevailing message."--School Library Journal (starred review)

"The essays are sophisticated...but the interviews will grab elementary-grade readers."--Booklist

"This is must reading for all who are interested in America's struggle for racial justice, then and now."--Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

Reviews - What do customers think about Oh, Freedom!?

Moving  Jun 25, 2001
I was featured in this book along with my mother(pg.22)and I remember when it was just a homework assignment in elementary school. When I was told it was a book I was amazed to see all of the people I knew and the moving stories it consisted of. I enjoy that book everytime I pick it up. It is especially easy for children to read because it was written by people aging 10-14. I especially love the foreword that was written by Rosa Parks herself. Very insiteful.
Fantastic  Jun 16, 2001
There are many wonderful stories told within the context of this rather difficult subject. For those who use writer's workshop . . . this is an excellent example of the use of interviews and other nonfiction techniques.
