Abby Takes a Stand

In November I read Abby Takes a Stand by Patricia C. McKissack. This is something that really happened in 1960. Abby is a black person back in the time of segregation. My teacher explained that segregation means black people and white people could not eat at the same restaurants or go to the same schools, or drink in the same drinking fountains. The people in Abby's town are tired of being treated badly. They keep on having meetings on how to stop it. Finally they think of something. Part of the plan is that adults will sit in restaurants that only serve white people. The best part I liked about this book is that it is about a true event.
