Remember: The Journey to School Integration | Toni Morrison
6 posts | 3 read | 5 to read
Toni Morrison has collected a treasure chest of archival photographs that depict the historical events surrounding school desegregation. These unforgettable images serve as the inspiration for Ms. Morrisons texta fictional account of the dialogue and emotions of the children who lived during the era of separate but equal schooling. Remember is a unique pictorial and narrative journey that introduces children to a watershed period in American history and its relevance to us today. Remember will be published on the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision ending legal school segregation, handed down on May 17, 1954.

There's so much of her work I haven't read, but this quote of hers will always resonate with me.

ValerieAndBooks Great quote 💖. Is that the Cal Expo bear in your profile picture?! 5mo
CaliforniaCay Good eye! It sure is, I live in Sacramento, and I don't go to Cal Expo often, but I took that pic last year at the Aloha Festival 🌞 5mo
ValerieAndBooks @CaliforniaCay I grew up in the Sacramento area 😊 . Moved away in 1990 but still go back regularly to see family. 5mo
CaliforniaCay @ValerieAndBooks I love meeting fellow Californians! Sending some Cali sunshine and good vibes your way ✌🏾💚✌🏾 5mo

The world has one less brilliant novelist in it today.

While I haven‘t read any of her works, I‘ve seen her quotes scattered around various places and she seemed like such a force of light and power.

I‘ve spent the last couple of hours educating myself on her, and I am so deeply saddened that this world lost such an icon today.

Well done, Toni.

My most sincere sympathies to those of you mourning this loss more than I am today.

A photographic story about the journey to school integration. The text is simple enough even for younger elementary students, and the photographs are powerful. I wish there was context with the photos on the same page, even just identifying people like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. for the kids who will read this. They are identified in the photo notes, but having them on the same page would be more kid-friendly.
