Comments Miles to Go for Freedom: Segregation and Civil Rights in the Jim Crow Years

  1. Richie s Picks MILES TO GO FOR FREEDOM SEGREGATION CIVIL RIGHTS IN THE JIM CROW YEARS by Linda Barrett Osborne, Abrams Library of Congress, 128p ISBN 978 1 4197 0020 0 Justice John Marshall Harlan was the only Supreme Court judge in 1896 to disagree with the Plessy decision He wrote, The constitution of the United States does not, I think, permit any public authority to know the race of those entitled to be protected in the enjoyment of their civil rights Harlan also wrote that the common govern [...]


  2. This companion book to the author s earlier Traveling the Freedom Road relies on moving first hand accounts and powerful photographs to provide perspective on the years preceding the modern civil rights era and the protests of the 1950s and 1960s Examining events that occurred in the South and in the North, the author begins in 1890 when the state of Mississippi crafted an amendment to the state constitution requiring voters to pay a poll tax or pass a literacy test in order to vote She conclude [...]


  3. A really nice book that I found in my library This book details the segregation and civil rights black people in the United States had to deal with even after the end of the Civil War This reminds me of a funny video I saw about American history American history in 4 minutes, I think not a direct quote After slavery was abolished in the mid 1800s, black people suffered for the next 100 years before they were considered to be equal to white people The author shows the history of racism and inequa [...]


  4. There are many books available for children and young adults about the Civil Rights Era, some are naturally better than others But in order for children and young adults to truly understand the Civil Rights Era, they need to understand what came before This book beautifully tells that story The fabulous design adds greatly to the power of the story Osborne has to tell With access to the Library of Congresses large collection of materials, Osborne gives the reader a glimpse into a time not so lon [...]


  5. I am so glad that there is a book for young readers that discusses the time between Reconstruction and Civil Rights This period of history is consistently skipped, censored or otherwise glossed over.And this book has a lot of my key requirements for a great non fiction book for young readers It takes on a difficult subject through age appropriate prose and takes the time to explain everything in a non patronizing way The images collected are remarkable and I found myself struck by photographs th [...]


  6. A detailed and thought provoking account of segregation A valuable and comprehensive perspective on American race relations Publishers Weekly, starred review Readers will come away moved, saddened, troubled by this stain on their country s past and filled with abiding respect for those who fought and overcame Osborne expertly guides readers through this painful, turbulent time of segregation, enabling them to understand fully the victims struggles and triumphs as they worked courageously to set [...]


  7. A moving book detailing the struggles of Afrian Americans during the Jim Crow years across the country Published in association with the Library of Congress this book contains numerous photos that help illustrate segregation The writing is great, the author has done a lot of research and blends fact with personal experience which has a powerful impact for the reader I shook my head many times as I read about the countless injustices faced by not only the African American population, but also oth [...]


  8. When I read We Are the Ship by Kadir Nelson, I was fascinated to learn that there was an integrated professional baseball league after the civil war I really didn t realize that there was a time before Jim Crow when African Americans enjoyed relative equality and prosperity, only to lose it to the oppressive and hateful laws of the Jim Crow era I learned a bit about this period in Crow This book begins with Plessy v Ferguson the Supreme Court decision that laid the groundwork for the Jim Crow l [...]


  9. Very well done history of the Jim Crow era, defined here as 1890 1954 I really liked the mix of personal stories, ancedotes, and examples of discrimination and the broader picture state and local laws, court cases, migration trends, etc Great photo selection, too The reason I m not giving it 5 stars is that I m not crazy about the organization of the book the three sections chapters are simply The South, the North, the Nation Rather too broad, IMHO I think the book could have benefited from , an [...]


  10. My Thoughts I learned tons from this book and it wasn t hard to keep reading it a perfect combination for nonfiction, I think I keep realizing just how ignorant I am about civil rights, Jim Crow laws, black history, and so much I liked that this focused on a time period that I didn t know a lot about or much of anything I was completely surprised to learn that African Americans had way rights in the late 1800s than they did like 40 years later It s painful to read about those rights being slow [...]


  11. This well illustrated and researched book published in association with The Library of Congress is a fantastic overview of the changes in African American rights from the 1800s up through Brown vs Board of Education It is especially interesting to find out that before the Civil War, African Americans were making some group in integrating into society, but after this time period their freedoms were greatly curtailed Separate by Equal is discussed at length, as is the topic of African Americans fi [...]


  12. Highlights the rise and fall of segregation and the Jim Crow Laws A lot of good information, but it never really popped for me certainly didn t impress me as much as Claudette Colvin or To the Mountaintop.


  13. Osborne offers a concise overview of the Jim Crow years in this fine addition to middle school collections Documents period photographs, timeline, notes, bibliography and a thorough index all contribute toward the authenticity and authority of the work.


  14. Although this book is a treasure trove of archival photos showing the lives of African Americans during the Jim Crow years, the lack of organization really put me off Huge blocks of text that dipped in an out of different decades and locations did not make for easy reading.






  15. Good overview of the history of the Jim Crow years for kids Lots of photos that add to the understanding.
