"Drawing on archival photographs and interviews with marchers who were as young as 10 at the time, Partridge swiftly sets the stage for the political war of nerves that culminated in the walk from Selma to Montgomery.
Partridge shows eloquently how a season of protest educated and transformed Selma’s children... Meanwhile, Partridge's stirring history poses another, more immediate question for the thoughtful reader: Where are today's Selmas and what might a young person do about them?" New York Times
