"Sarah's Long Walk: The Free Blacks of Boston and How Their Struggle for Equality Changed America" by Paul Kendrick, Stephen Kendrick
Beacon Press | 2006 | ISBN: 0807050199 | 325 pages | PDF | 5 Mb

In the fall of 1848, a five-year-old African American girl named Sarah Roberts walked past five white schools to attend the poor and densely crowded all-black Abiel Smith School on Boston’s Beacon Hill. Her father, Benjamin Roberts, decided to sue the city to end this injustice. The historic court case that followed set the stage for over a century of struggle, culminating in 1954 with the unanimous decision in Brown v. Board of Education.
The authors handle the weighty issue of desegregation with skill; this is a book for historians and humanitarians.

"Michael J. Klarman's monumental book–undertaking a sweeping exploration of the causes and consequences of all of the Supreme Court's race decisions from Plessy v. Ferguson to Brown vs. Board of Education–is likely to become the definitive study of the Supreme Court and race in the first half of the twentieth century. As a narrative history of the Court's actions on the broad array of constitutional issues relevant to racial equality–from criminal procedure to voting rights to desegregation–the book is an invaluable resource."–Reviews in American History
