More Description

On August 28, 1963--the day of Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech--segregation ended at Gwynn Oak amusement park in Maryland when eleven-month old Sharon Langley, her dad beside her, became the first black child to ride the park's famous merry-go-round. As Amy Nathan tells the story of how individuals in Baltimore integrated one amusement park in their town, she also gives an overview of the history of segregation and the civil rights movement. "Round and Round Together" creates a new civil rights symbol--the Gwynn Oak carousel is now the Smithsonian Carousel which thousands of kids enjoy each year.

"Round and Round Together" is illustrated with archival photos from newspapers and other sources, as well as personal photos from family albums of individuals interviewed for the book and a timeline of major civil rights events.

Amy Nathan is an award-winning author of several books for young people including "The Young Musician's Survival Guide," "Count on Us: American Women in the Military," "Yankee Doodle Gals: Women Pilots of World War II," "Meet the Musicians," and "Surviving Homework."
