Product Overview

This book tells of Sarah Keys Evans, an unsung Civil Rights hero. As a young woman in the Womens Army Corps in 1952, she did what Rosa Parks did-three years before Rosa Parks. Sarah Keys Evans kept standing up for her rights until victory was won. Her story shows that an individual can have an impact on history, and that in troubled times ordinary people can step up and accomplish remarkable things. Her story also shows that change is a step-by-step process. Many small contributions along the way help to bring about big shifts in attitudes and laws. Sarah Keys, a courageous Army private, helped set the stage for the civil rights movement in the 1950s by seeking and getting a legal ruling outlawing discrimination on seating on buses and proving that justice can be there for each of us. Wilma L. Vaught, Brigadier General, USAF (retired); President, Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation, Inc. Sarah Keys fought her battle against segregation and humiliations as a matter of moral decency and learned first hand about mental and physical fear thus exemplifying extraordinary courage. Representative Major R. Owens, U.S. House of Representatives; from a proclamation issued March 2006 Perfectly pitched to its target elementary audience. Nathan strikes just the right balance of emotion and facts necessary to reach children within the context of a history lesson. A winner. -Kirkus Discoveries *Author: Nathan, Amy/ Evans, Sarah K. *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 96 *Publication Date: 2006/12/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.23 inches
