    Description
    At certain moments in the struggle to achieve civil rights, an iconic gesture or event can galvanize a people to make a leap toward their goal. This series begins with just such gestures or events—whether they are something as simple as gathering salt or sitting at a lunch counter. Each book then elaborates on that gesture, explaining the struggle it represents, including those who were the struggle's main players, what they eventually achieved, and their legacy.
