Item description for Equal Justice: The Courage of Ada Sipuel by William Bernhardt...
The law said America kept the black and white races separate but equal. From the time she was a young girl growing up in Chickasha, Oklahoma, however, Ada Sipuel learned that separate was never equal. Ada hoped to fight for equality for all people by becoming a lawyer, but the only law school in Oklahoma refused to admit her because of the color of her skin. Ada learned that civil disobedience could combat inequality. Her bravery set in motion a chain of events that broke down barriers of injustice in America.

BERNHARDT NON-FICTION Mar 8, 2007
I DONATED THIS TO MY LIBRARY. I WAS NOT AWARE WHEN I ORDERED THIS BOOK THAT IT WAS NON-FICTION. I HAVE ENJOYED MANY OF WILLIAM BERNHARDT'S FICTION BOOKS AND WHEN I SAW THIS WAS "NEW" BY HIM, I ORDERED IT. IT WAS NOT A BOOK I WAS INTERESTED IN READING. MY LIBRARY WAS HAPPY TO RECEIVE IT, ESPECIALLY IN FEBRUARY, BLACK HISTORY MONTH.
