Details of the book
Daisy Bates: Civil Rights Crusader

Daisy Bates's life began in a small sawmill town in southern Arkansas. Growing up in the '20s and '30s, Daisy noticed the difference between the way blacks and whites were treated. Upon finding out that her birth mother had been murdered by white men, she developed a hatred and mistrust of whites that was exacerbated by the bigotry of southern society. But Daisy found a way to channel her anger, aided by her husband, L C, and the examples of Martin Luther King Jr and Mahatma Gandhi, into a lifetime of accomplishments in the struggle for civil rights for African Americans. These hard and often dangerous efforts eventually earned her numerous awards, citations, and medals. Now, nearly fifty years later, Little Rock has named a street in her honour, and her house is a national historic site. This is the first biography of Daisy Bates for young adults. A proud civil rights activist, she was -- in every way -- as instrumental in breaking down the colour barriers of the South as were Rosa Parks and other African Americans who decided that they had had enough.
