Separate Is Never Equal
This book is about a how white people had different things, nicer things, than brown people. A family sent their children to school but the white people at the school were mean and teased the brown people. But when the children’s father went to ask the principal what was the matter, he just said that was how things were done. So they had to go to a different school that was much farther away and it was really bad. One day they had to go to the courthouse to discuss it. But they had to go all through the week – all the way from Monday through Thursday. They were discussing if the brown people should go to the white people’s school. And finally, when they joined enough people, they finally said that the brown people could go to school with the white people. So when they went to the school, at first the white children teased them again but they just ignored it, and finally they stopped teasing and the children made friends. I liked this book because they were fighting for equal rights.
