March Forward, Girl: From Young Warrior to Little Rock Nine

This book is about Melba Pattillo Beals
"March Forward, Girl: From Young Warrior to Little Rock Nine" is an inspiring childhood memoir by Melba Pattillo Beals, a prominent civil rights activist and one of the courageous Little Rock Nine. Published on December 24, 2019, this memoir delves into Beals’s early life in the Jim Crow South, where she first questioned the deeply ingrained racial injustices and dreamed of a life marked by equality. Despite being cautioned to stay silent and accept her 'place', Beals’s spirit remained unbroken; she knew her true place was one of freedom and justice. Rich with emotive photos and including a personal Q&A with Beals, plus a bonus audio clip, the book paints a vivid portrait of her formative years as a fighter for racial justice and education equity. Ideal for middle-school readers, this memoir not only recounts history but also empowers young readers to think critically about the ongoing fight for equality. Beals’s story is a testament to the impact one brave voice can have in echoing through generations.
