But things might be changing. Three black men want to register to vote, and Stella's father is one of them. They know it is dangerous, but they also know people like the Klan will never just give them rights. It they want dignity and self respect, they will have to step up and demand it.
Stella is proud of her father's courage, but her mother is worried about retaliation. When tragedy strikes, the whole community will come together including some people Stella never expected to see on her side. Will Stella be able to overcome her own fears and find her courage?
Sharon Draper's new book explores a troubling time of segregation and transition in our nation's past and the power of one young girl's courage.
