School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up‘Each of these volumes begins with a description of an event or turning point that was significant to the movement in question. Essays and debates express opposing viewpoints on these issues. The Civil Rights Movement includes the writings of Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. DuBois, James Weldon Johnson, Thurgood Marshall, Earl Warren, Benjamin E. Mays, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., Charlayne Hunter-Gault, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture), Roy Wilkins, and David J. Garrow. Selections in The Women's Rights Movement conclude with the 1970s, but many of the topics addressed are still controversial today, raising questions not only about women's legal and political status, but also about the very definition of gender. Essays either supporting or opposing the questions are authored by notables such as Abigail Adams, Angelina Grimké, Margaret Fuller, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Theodore Roosevelt, Margaret Sanger, Betty Friedan, and Phyllis Schlafly. Each volume concludes with discussion questions for each chapter, a chronology, an annotated bibliography, and a comprehensive index.‘Dana McDougald, Cedar Shoals High School, Athens, GA (c) Copyright 2010.
