Half a century after some of its most important moments, the assessment of the Civil Rights Era continues. In A Child Shall Lead Them, Dr. Rufus Burrow turns his attention to a less investigated but critically important byway in this powerful story - the role of children and young people in the Civil Rights Movement.
What role did young people play, and how did they support the efforts of their elders? What did they see - and what did they do? - that their elders were unable to envision? How did children play their part in the liberation of their people?
In this project, Burrow reveals the surprising power of youth to change the world.
