How Four Friends Stood up by Sitting. This picture book is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the momentous Woolworth's lunch counter sit-in, when four college students staged a peaceful protest that became a defining moment in the struggle for racial equality and the growing civil rights movement. "It was February 1, 1960. they didn't need menus; their order was simple; a doughnut and coffee, with cream on the side." Plain spoken, but not oversimplified, a great addition to children's literature of the civil rights era.
