March Forward, Girl
Author: Melba Beals
Frank Morrison

Long before she was one of the Little Rock Nine, Melba Pattillo Beals was a warrior. Frustrated by the laws that kept African-Americans separate but very much unequal, she had questions. Why couldn’t she drink from a "whites only" fountain? Why couldn’t she feel safe beyond home? Adults all told her: Hold your tongue. Be patient. Know your place. But Beals had the heart of a fighter—and knew that her true place was a free one. Combined with drawings and photos, Beals recounts her early journey to becoming a champion for equal rights, a best-selling author, and the recipient of this country’s highest recognition, the Congressional Gold Medal.
