Freedom on the Menu by Carole Boston Weatherford
Freedom on the Menu is the story of the Greensboro Four told through the eyes of a young girl named Connie. Connie wants to sit at the Woolworth counter like the girl she sees twirling on the stool, but the law does not allow African Americans to sit at the lunch counter. Through protests and sit-ins sparked by a sermon by Dr. Marin Luther King, the law is changed and Connie gets to eat her first banna spilt sitting at a Woolworth counter. Carole Weatherford tells the story of this historic event in language that even a young child can understand.
