10 True Tales: Young Civil Rights Heroes
Ten true stories of real-life civil rights heroes!
Sixteen-year-old protest leader Rodney Hurst can't comprehend what's unfolding in front of him: Hundreds of hate-filled men brandishing ax handles and baseball bats are attacking any black person in their path.
Hundreds of black teens in another peaceful march find themselves blasted by powerful fire hoses. The students lock arms with each other and try desperately to hold their ground. But it's impossible to withstand the force of water pressure that can peel bark off a tree.
These and other young African-American heroes risked their lives in the civil-rights movement. You will never forget their courageous true stories.
