Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom

Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom

This is Lynda Lowery's own story of overcoming fear and fighting for justice. Jailed 11 times before her 15th birthday, Lynda was the youngest marcher on the historic 1965 voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. She vowed that she would make a difference--and she did. In her own words, Lynda shows YA readers what it meant to fight nonviolently (even when the police are using violence, as in the "Bloody Sunday" protest), and how it felt to overcome terror and win the battle.
