Raul Colon: Child of the Civil Rights Movement
Raul Colon’s most recent picture book, “Child of the Civil Rights Movement” was written by Paula Young Shelton, daughter of Civil Rights activist Andrew Young.
With an activist father and a community of leaders surrounding her, including Uncle Martin (Martin Luther King), Paula watched and listened to the struggles, eventually joining with her family—and thousands of others—in the historic march from Selma to Montgomery. Poignant, moving, and hopeful, this is an intimate look at the birth of the Civil Rights Movement. The book may be ordered through Theispot Bookstore.
