Small Moments: A Child's Memories of the Civil Rights Movement

Adult; Memoir; (Market)

Based on a true story set during the early years of the Civil Rights movement, 'Small Moments' is a gripping and heartfelt tale of how one uneducated and underprivileged woman taught a young girl to see the world not in terms of color, but in terms of kindness, equality and love. Amelia, an African American housemaid who may have been affected by the heartbreaking experiment at Tuskegee, is a tender mother figure who gradually exposes her young, white charge to the rippling tide of the nation's unrest as it confronts the issues of racism, sexism and classism in every day life.
