520    Describes the peaceful protest organized by teenager 
       Barbara Rose Johns in order to secure a permanent building
       for her segregated high school in Virginia in 1951, and 
       explains how her actions helped fuel the civil rights 
520    "Before the Little Rock Nine, before Rosa Parks, before 
       Martin Luther King Jr. and his March on Washington, there 
       was Barbara Rose Johns, a teenager who used nonviolent 
       civil disobedience to draw attention to her cause. In 1951,
       witnessing the unfair conditions in her racially 
       segregated high school, Barbara Johns led a walkout--the 
       first public protest of its kind demanding racial equality
       in the U.S.--jumpstarting the American civil rights 
       movement. Ridiculed by the white superintendent and school
       board, local newspapers, and others, and even after a 
       cross was burned on the school grounds, Barbara and her 
       classmates held firm and did not give up. Her school's 
       case went all the way to the Supreme Court and helped end 
       segregation as part of Brown v. Board of Education. 
       Barbara Johns grew up to become a librarian in the 
       Philadelphia school system. The Girl from the Tar Paper 
       School mixes biography with social history and is 
       illustrated with family photos, images of the school and 
       town, and archival documents from classmates and local and
       national news media. The book includes a civil rights 
       timeline, bibliography, and index."--Publisher's
