This book explains civil rights and the reasons why refugees flee their homelands in an accessible way for younger readers.

Refugee movements through history are explored chronologically. A selection of key civil rights moments and movements are broken down into short blocks of text that explain the reasons why these people fled their homelands and the ways they were treated when they arrived in new lands. It looks at historical examples, such as the Huguenots and World War refugees, along with modern crisis, such as Syria, refugee camps in Africa and those fleeing violence in South and Central America.

Prominent civil rights campaigners and figures are featured and a timeline helps readers to see at a glance how the fight for refugee rights 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 British journalist and television presenter, Nelufar Hedayat.

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