Warriors Don’t Cry by Melba Pattillo Beals


Wow…what a book!  I read this one last year, but reread it this summer because it was sooooo good!  Written by Melba Pattillo Beals, who was 16 when she was chosen to integrate into Little Rock School during a Civil Rights firestorm.  Warning…this book was difficult to read at times because of the horrific treatment of the African Americans who were chosen to go to an all white school however, all of the hatred these teenagers faced is 100% true because Melba was there!   This is a must read for everyone and would be a great family read so parents and students can discuss this time period in history!

Happy Reading,
