Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Channie Waites gives immediacy to Dawnie’s life. Waites radiates exuberance as Dawnie dreams of her future; delivers steely voices during each racial confrontation, whether in the science lab or on the front lawn; rails with Dawnie’s exasperation at her autistic younger brother, and provides a tone of spunk for Dawnie’s friend, Gertie. In the narrator role, Waites’s words move the story fluidly from episode to episode.”

  • “Read with passion and expression, listeners will admire the spunky young girl in this entertaining, historically-based recording.” 

    School Library Journal

  • “While many contemporary accounts of the Civil Rights movement focus on the courage, integrity and character of those who pioneered the struggle, Pinkney does a commendable job imagining both the setting and the inner emotions that ordinary children might have wrestled with as they stepped into history.”
