Medgar Evers: He Taught His Kids To Crawl So We Could Stand (Volume 1)

In Medgar Evers: “He Taught His Kids To Crawl So We Could Stand” — Katina Rankin teaches children that history’s mistakes can linger if we aren’t willing to stand up and tell the truth — that there will always be abuses of power, unless we jointly take a knee to prove a point, and that the arc of the universe doesn’t bend toward justice unless we’re willing to do the work even if it includes crawling to get the pendulum of justice to swing toward honesty.

Each page filled with words of its era, pictures and quotes intertwined into the conversational setting of a loving family’s home. The storytelling provides deeper insight for children than some history books. The author supplies an in-depth analysis of civil rights through a family’s dialogue of various aspects of the movement.

Medgar Evers: “He Taught His Kids To Crawl So We Could Stand” also teaches kids now is always  the time to do what’s right. And it gives children hope teaching them justice delayed is not justice denied.

Pamela D.C. Junior of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum wrote:
“I am awed by how Ms. Rankin transformed a complex subject matter into a story of hope, equality, and justice that will awaken the interest of students to want to know more about the life that Medgar lived.“
