Title:  Take A Seat – Make A Stand: A Hero In The Family

Publisher:  iUniverse

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – AAA Founder

A Real Hero of The Civil Rights Movement!

Even though she wore an Army uniform and was in the service of her country what happened to Sarah Keys Evans to make her a hero did not happen on the battlefields. Author Amy Nathan puts together a non-fiction children’s book that deals with some real important issues and some civil rights history. Her book “Take A Seat – Make A Stand: A Hero In The Family” is about real courage and about doing the right thing.

The book details what happened to Sarah Evans back in 1952 when she was a young black woman serving her country in the Women’s Army Corps. She refused to give up her seat on a bus on her way back to camp and was put in jail and fined. This happened three years before Rosa Parks did the same thing. The story follows her as she fights injustice; and after years of legal work, she gets some laws changed. It is truly an inspirational story that is not only just for children but people of all ages.

I had never heard this women’s story before nor anything about her successful battles in the congress to change the laws, but this book opened that as new history to me. I think this book will educate many people about who some of our unsung heroes of the civil rights battles were. I am sure that there must be many more whom history has no long-term memory of. If this book inspires young people to go and look for more “heroes” that would be a most wonderful gift indeed.

This book is highly recommended for children from age of 10 and up including adults like myself who enjoyed reading it.
