The civil rights sit-ins sparked the larger civil rights movement, inspiring many people to protest racial inequality. This book discusses how the United States’ history of slavery and segregation led people to make a change, how the sit-ins began to make businesses available to all, and how the protests changed the laws of a nation. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards.
