by Melba Pattillo Beals
Following the landmark 1954 Supreme Court ruling Brown v. Board of Education, Melba Pattillo became a warrior on the front lines of a civil rights firestorm. Warriors Don’t Cry is her autobiographical account of the integration of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1957. This book explores not only the power of racism, but also such ideas as justice, identity, and choice. Facing History and Ourselves has published a study guide to accompany this book.
