Illustrator R. Gregory Christie recommends Black & White: The Confrontation between Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Eugene “Bull” Connor by Larry Dane Brimner. “I chose this book because so many people know about Dr. King’s achievements but are unaware of Reverend Shuttlesworth’s accomplishments. Additionally, the historical photographs coupled with Brimmer’s attention to detail make for an engaging story.”
Black & White (Calkins Creek, 2011) is recommended for ages 12 and up.
