Gr 3–5—Each of these timely volumes opens with an introduction outlining a well-known demonstration, from the 1969 Stonewall Inn marches to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests in 2016, before turning to history. Sidebar features include profiles of folks like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Gloria Steinem, Marsha P. Johnson, and Sacheen Littlefeather. The design in each title will appeal to younger readers; short pieces of text are often set against a color block.
VERDICT While not trying to be comprehensive, each title sensitively and honestly lays out the history, background, and recent events in its respective movement. Recommended.
