Description - The Selma Marches for Civil Rights by Steven Otfinoski

Vivid storytelling and authentic dialogue bring American history to life and place readers in the shoes of ten people who experienced one of the most pivotal moments of the Civil Rights Movement - the marches from Selma to Montgomery. In March 1965 nonviolent activists led by Martin Luther King Jr. began a series of marches in Alabama. They faced brutal resistance as they struggled for voting rights for African-Americans in the South and across the nation. Suspenseful dramatic events unfold in chronological interwoven stories from the different perspectives of people who experienced the event while it was happening. Narratives intertwine to create a breathless 'What's Next' kind of read. Students gain a new perspective on historical figures as they learn about real people struggling to decide how best to act in a given moment.
