THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WE CAN GIVE OUR CHILDREN IS AN EDUCATION.' -Mae Bertha Carter In 1965, the Carters, an African American sharecropping family with thirteen children, took public officials at their word when they were offered Freedom of Choice to send their children to any school they wished, and so began their unforeseen struggle to desegregate the schools of Sunflower County, Mississippi. In this true account from the front lines of the civil rights movement, four generations of the Carter family speak to author and civil rights activist Constance Curry, who lived this story alongside the family-a story of clear-eyed determination, extraordinary grit, and sweet triumph.
