FREEDOM WALKERS by Russell Freedman

freedom walkers by russell freedman

Russell Freedman is known for his clairty, obsession for the facts, and handsom layouts with lots of photos. The Montgomery Bus Boycott changed the way we saw and treat people now. It was during this time that Freedman wrote his first novel after reading an article about a blind teenage boy who invented a typewriter. This is not the same as being segregated on a bus, but the racism portion is definitely there. In his signature clear prose, Freedman draws on the best of those personal stories and historical accounts to provide a dramatic overview of how the 381-day resistance to segregated buses spearheaded the civil rights movement. I like books with action and adventure and non-fiction books don't really have that unless its a war book or something in that genre.
