Who Marched for Civil Rights?

by Richard Spilsbury
Illustrated by HL Studios

How do we know about the thousands of people who marched in campaigns for civil rights for African Americans in the 1960s? Where did they march and what happened to them? This book shows how we know about the marchers and their experiences from primary and other sources. It includes information on some historical detective work that has taken place, using documentary and oral evidence, that has enabled historians to piece together the fascinating story of the civil rights marches.

"“History Detectives” sidebars introduce readers to the basics of primary source research, such as how to find, critically evaluate, and use sources. Maps, charts, and large illustrations and photos add interest, while sidebars introduce important figures, excerpt documents, or pose critical thinking questions. . . .Similar topics have received wide extant coverage, but these titles provide enough material and research guidance to be good supplementary report choices." - School Library Journal
