Four young men sat without being served, while everyone else was served, because they were black, and the lunch counter was segregated. But they kept sitting, and others joined them, until laws changed. Picture book format.

A really great way to introduce the topic of racism and the civil rights movement to children. A mature topic, but a vital one to introduce at an early age.
