Freedom's Teacher: The Life of Septima Clark

This book is about Septima Clark
In "Freedom's Teacher: The Life of Septima Clark," readers are introduced to the remarkable journey of Septima Poinsette Clark, a pivotal figure in the civil rights movement whose efforts in education helped shape the fight for racial justice, education equity, and voting rights. Published on February 1, 2012, this biography by Katherine Charron uncovers the untold stories of a woman who used her role as an educator to empower African American communities during the mid-20th century. Through the development of a citizenship training program, Clark not only enabled thousands of African Americans to register to vote but also taught them to harness this new power to effect significant societal change. Ideal for middle school students, this book not only narrates the history but also prompts readers to reflect on how education can be a tool for activism and justice, inviting them to consider how they might contribute to continuing Clark’s legacy in today’s world.
