Narrator Janina Edwards's words take listeners to Birmingham, Alabama, in 1963. As Martin Luther King and the city's citizens plan a peaceful protest, it is the children who step forward to march without the repercussion of job loss. Listeners will walk with a young protester as she encounters hate, police dogs, and several days of jail. Edwards deftly expresses her fear but also her pride as she is released, knowing she has made a difference. Edwards's even voice leaves listeners to consider the magnitude of the events for themselves. Background music and sound effects are tailored to event and mood. The production concludes with thoughts from the author and illustrator as well as a list of important dates in the Civil Rights movement, including the Children's Crusade.
