Oh, Freedom! : Oh, Freedom! Is an extraordinary account of the civil rights movement in the United States, told in a series of thirty-one interviews conducted by children with family members, friends, and civil rights activists. Through their interviews, the children learn firsthand about the prejudice endured by people living under the suffocating constraints of Jim Crow laws, and about what happened when they began to fight for their rights. Told from the point of view of the people involved, and illustrated with historical photographs, Oh, Freedom is the story of the triumphs that hope and unity can make possible.
