Summary:
"It's May 1963, and twelve-year-old Nina Norris is answering a call from civil rights leaders in Birmingham, Alabama. Black Americans are demanding the right to vote, but adults who protest risk losing their jobs. So, children are protesting in their place. As Nina prepares for her day, she knows she will likely be arrested and put in jail, but it's a price she is willing to pay so that all people can have a say in their government. Readers can learn the real story of the Birmingham Children's Crusade from the nonfiction back matter in this Girls Survive story. A glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts are also provided"-- Provided by publisher.
