The bustling river city of St. Louis occupies a special place in the long history of African American advocacy for civil rights and equal justice. “Standing Up for Civil Rights in St. Louis” tells the stories of the many ordinary men and women who took extraordinary steps to fight for equal rights in St. Louis. Written for upper elementary school readers, the book presents the long arc of the struggle for civil rights, giving young readers a new perspective.
