The little girl's first sit-in in at a restaurant in Atlanta where she cries loudly because they will not let her sit at the counter.
Her family and many others get together and have meals together at their homes - but sometimes in the few restaurants for blacks. They talk about the walk from Selma to Montgomery. I love the language used to describe all the people talking at once...
With everyone trying to talk at once, I thought they sounded
just like instruments tuning up before a concert.
Each person's voice is compared to a different person...everyone except "Uncle Martin."
The story ends with MLK standing over LBJ's shoulder watching him sign the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
This is a lovely story for students since it is told from a child's perspective.
