This book explains civil rights and the history of slavery in an accessible way for younger readers.

Stories of slavery through history are explored chronologically. A selection of key civil rights moments and movements are broken down into short blocks of text that examine some of the history of how and why people of colour were enslaved. It looks at historical examples, such as the Vikings and the Silk Road trade routes. It explores the topic of the Atlantic slave trade and the underground railroad, along with modern examples of the slave trade today in farming, fishing and manufacturing.

Prominent civil rights campaigners and figures are featured and a timeline helps readers to see at a glance how the fight to end slavery has evolved over time. Sensitive illustrations help to illuminate the text and will aid readers in understanding some of the trickier concepts. Death and violence are mentioned, but are wholly in context and are written about in a non-alarmist way with the age of the reader very much in mind.


The book includes a foreword by Arike Oke, who is the Managing Director of Black Cultural Archives in Brixton, London.

The Civil Rights Stories series is a vital resource for younger readers aged 7+ who are being introduced to these topics, are interested in anti-racism or are studying these topics in school.
