Karen White's direct, serious narration fits the tone of Green's vital work on the multigenerational impact of racist policies. In 1951, a Black high school student in Virginia led a protest against school segregation. This action established the momentum that led to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education ruling that desegregated U.S. schools. Yet in Prince Edward County, rather than integrate, the public schools were closed, and an all-white private school opened, a school that exists to this day despite recent efforts to integrate. Green's work clearly illustrates the harm of systemic racism and how lives continue to be impacted today by decisions of the past. White's crisp first-person reporting deftly reflects Green's research and argument. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
