Going Someplace Special

by Patricia C. McKissack

What would you do if you were not allowed to sit in the front of the bus because the law said your skin was the wrong color? What if you couldn't eat at a restaurant, sit on a park bench, or even get a drink of water just because you had dark skin? 

Louise felt great as she set out for Someplace Special. But this was the 1950's, and going places wasn't easy for African-Americans. She met detours in the form of Jim Crow laws everywhere she went, but the trip was worth it because she finally arrived at Someplace Special.
