Warriors Don't Cry by Melba Pattillo Beals*****

Warriors Don't Cry is about the segregation in the town of Little Rock, Arkansas. Melba Beals is one of the students chosen to integrate Little Rock Central High School. Students, parents, even teachers disapproved, but Melba never gave up. With the help of the few decent people at the time, she made it through the whole school year, and became a hero in the end.

This memoir is amazing. It is one of, if not the, most moving books I have ever read. I think that everyone should read this book just to get a feel of what it was like in the nineteen-fifty-seven. I hope everybody realizes how big of a problem this was. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
