Mighty Justice: My Life in Civil Rights

This book is about Dovey Johnson Roundtree
In "Mighty Justice: My Life in Civil Rights," readers are invited into the remarkable life of Dovey Johnson Roundtree, a pioneering force in the realms of racial justice, gender equality, and criminal justice reform. This powerful narrative, published on November 5, 2019, delves into the heart of America's civil rights struggle through the eyes of Roundtree, whose legal battles and ministerial work intertwined to challenge and reshape the societal norms of her time. From her early days in Charlotte, North Carolina, to breaking barriers in the courts and pulpits of Washington D.C., Roundtree's journey is a testament to the profound impact one person can have on the course of history. Her landmark victory in a 1955 bus desegregation case marked a pivotal moment in dismantling the "separate but equal" doctrine, advancing the civil rights movement and ultimately changing the lives of countless Americans. This book is an essential read for middle school students, providing a vivid lesson on how perseverance and courage can drive change, even in the face of insurmountable odds. "Mighty Justice" not only honors Roundtree's legacy but also serves as a crucial reminder of the ongoing fight for justice in a still racially troubled world.
