Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice

By Phillip Hoose

Meet the Rosa Parks before Rosa Parks, with extensive interviews and historical documentations of a high school student who wasn’t afraid to lead the way in the civil rights movement. See the hardships and disgust she faced when just a fraction of time later, others in her life were celebrated. The stark contrast between celebration and disdain for similar actions poses the question of age in activism and treatment towards one another within our communities.
