Fight On!: Mary Church Terrell's Battle for Integration by Dennis Brindell Fradin and Judith Bloom Fradin recounts the tale of a girl born to slaves in 1865, who went on to become an early civil rights leader with a career spanning 60 years. Mary Eliza Church, or ""Mollie,"" who graduated from Oberlin College in 1884, was ""the first black woman appointed to the Washington, D.C., Board of Education"" and a cofounder of the NAACP. Even at age 87, Church picketed Kresge's for ""maintain[ing] color barriers."" Period photographs, news clippings and more lend this inviting volume about an extraordinary leader a sense of immediacy.
