The Youngest Marcher
The Youngest Marcher The Story of Audrey Faye Hendricks, A Young Civil Rights Activist By Levinson, Cynthia Book - 2017

The historical children's march in Birmingham, Alabama in May 1963 will always be remembered as the brave and courageous act of more than 3,000 young people. This was the time of segregation in the deep south. The children's march was organized by civil rights leaders, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when the adults were fearful, and rightly so, of very negative consequences if they participated in a peaceful protest. Audrey Faye Hendricks was the youngest of the youth marchers. She was nine years old and eager to help the cause of equal rights in any way she could, even if it meant going to jail. Audrey was in the first group of children sent to jail. She spent one week in juvenile hall-a place no one would want to spend any time in. Read of Audrey's courage and determination to end segregation and establish equal rights for all. Based on the true story of Audrey Faye Hendricks, this new non-fiction book is a great reminder that we all, no matter our age, can always stand up for justice.
