Levinson’s account of children’s participation in civil rights demonstrations in Birmingham in 1963 makes for fascinating listening. Narrator Ervin Ross reads in a deliberate manner that mirrors the participants’ dedication and also allows listeners to process the many names, dates, places, and facts Levinson covers. Levinson tells a larger story through the stories of children who were there, including Audrey Faye Hendricks, who was only 9 years old when she was arrested for demonstrating, and Arnetta Streeter, a teenager who protested even though her parents forbade it. Ross’s voice and these stories have the power of truth. A compelling listen affirms that children can make a difference in their communities and the world.
