1.   The NAACP: An Organization Working to End Discrimination
Written by
Andrew Santella
This book traces the history of one of the nation's oldest and most important civil rights organizations, from the formation of the Niagara Movement on 1905 to modern-day protests over the flying of Confederate flags. Prominent NAACP leaders--such as W.E.B. DuBois, Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Thurgood Marshall--are profiled and milestones in the struggle for equal rights are discussed, including anti-lynching and desegregation efforts. The book includes a timeline, glossary and lots of photographs that break up the text and make the book accessible to younger readers.
[Grade Level: 3 - 6]
