Remember: The Journey to School Integration

Remember: The Journey to School Integration

2005 Coretta Scott King Award Winner

Toni Morrison has collected a treasure chest of archival photographs that depict the historical events surrounding school desegregation. These unforgettable images serve as the inspiration for Ms. Morrison’s text—a fictional account of the dialogue and emotions of the children who lived during the era of “separate but equal” schooling. Remember is a unique pictorial and narrative journey that introduces children to a watershed period in American history and its relevance to us today.

    "The photos are electrifying. Beautifully reproduced in sepia prints, the archival images humanize the politics of the civil rights movement." Booklist, ALA

    "Puts history in context for a new generation of readers." Bookpage

    "Beautiful and thorough." Columbus Dispatch

    Painful, personal and provocative, [Morrison's] focused visual history serves as a potent catalyst for discussing segregation and integration.
