Críticas:

"This is 'children's history' done right, integrating children into the wide world in truly meaningful ways and recognizing their agency as well as their dependency."--James Marten, Marquette University "De Schweinitz has written a remarkable book that combines a history of African American youth with the 'long history' of the civil rights movement to give us a study that, for the first time, truly contextualizes the role of African American young people in the momentous events of the 1950s and 1960s. This is an essential read for those interested in African American history and the history of social movements in the twentieth century."--Kenneth W. Goings, Ohio State University Mammy and Uncle Mose: Black Collectibles and American Stereotyping" " "De Schweinitz has an important story to tell and she tells it well. The civil rights movement did indeed change the world. And as this fine book reveals, young people were at the center of that long process of change."--"American Historical Review" "Clearly written and exhaustively researched, Schweinitz's book is a timely complement to revisionist studies of the civil rights era. . . . Future work in several branches of literary, cultural, and historical studies will be enhanced by Schweinitz's fre "A well-researched seminal work, the author documents not only the use of children's images and issues by African American organizations such as the NAACP, but also the extensive role children and youth played in the movement itself. . . .

De Schweinitz is a mature, graceful writer, and her book deserves to be widely read and appreciated for the important achievement it is. A powerful reminder that each generation's struggles are not just about themselves, but about the young to follow.--The Sixties: A Journal of History, Politics and Culture De Schweinitz does a fine job of taking depictions of children and childhood seriously, without sentimentality or cynicism. . . . De Schweinitz has done a commendable job of bringing scholarly attention to a long-neglected subject.--North Carolina Historical Review Clearly written and exhaustively researched, Schweinitz's book is a timely complement to revisionist studies of the civil rights era. . . . Future work in several branches of literary, cultural, and historical studies will be enhanced by Schweinitz's fresh consideration of the decisive role of young people in the black freedom struggle." --African American Review De Schweinitz has an important story to tell and she tells it well. The civil rights movement did indeed change the world. And as this fine book reveals, young people were at the center of that long process of change.--American Historical Review Draws effectively on an array of oral testimonies by people who, as children, joined the civil rights movement. . . .

De Schweinitz, with this thoughtful and well-researched work, has reminded historians of the important role that youths played in the movement, given scholars a model of how to pursue a further understanding of children's involvement in the twentieth-century black freedom movement, and raised numerous concerns that will help guide the scholarship along the way.--H-1960s A richly textured, finely woven, and ambitious study.--Journal of American History [An] innovative study.--"Arkansas Historical Quarterly" "An important book that comes at an appropriate time. . . .
