Summary
Having always lived a life where they couldn't drink from the white fountains or swim at the local pools, a group of four teens decides to fight the system in the segregated South of the 1960s by taking seats at a lunch counter and requesting to be served--just the same and equal as every white person in the establishment. Reprint.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: There were signs all throughout town telling eight-year-old Connie where she could and could not go. But when Connie sees four young men take a stand for equal rights at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, she realizes that things may soon change. This event sparks a movement throughout her town and region. And while Connie is too young to march or give a speech, she helps her brother and sister make signs for the cause. Changes are coming to Connie’s town, but Connie just wants to sit at the lunch counter and eat a banana split like everyone else.
