A Step Into History series takes a step into some of the most important moments in history, and discovers how these moments helped shape the world we live in today.African Americans have resisted oppression from the moment they were first enslaved and transported to the "New World" of America in the 1600s. During the 1950s and 1960s, this resistance led to a widespread movement for civil rights in the United States. Readers will find out how the movement began, what obstacles activists faced, what impact the movement had on the country, and much more.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Step into History series presents useful overviews of major topics in American history. Each book has 30 4-page chapters that follows a pattern: the first spread features a relevant captioned photo or quote, with the chapter name and a single sentence on the facing page; the second spread features a full page of text paired with a large illustration. Although each chapter is short, the concise, pertinent discussions and well-chosen illustrations are effective. Most of the pictures are archival photos that convey the look and the tone of events discussed. Furthermore, the uncrowded format will appeal to readers who are intimidated by solid blocks of text. The Civil Rights Movement focuses primarily on the movement during the 1950s and '60s, touching upon landmark events, figures, and where civil rights stand today. This attractive series provides a broad historical context for its topics and can be used as a springboard for more in-depth research.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2018 Booklist"
