I just read a new book called As Fast As Words Could Fly by Pamela Tuck. It's about a black boy growing up in the 1960's and going to a new school during desegregation. The story is based on the real-life events of the author's father. We always hear the same stories about racial segregation and this book gave me a chance to remember that the civil rights movement involved ordinary people and affected the lives of many people. Luckily, our country has made progress toward tolerated differences, but we still must recognize that we have work to do.
