Loving vs Virgina

This lovely poetic narrative, told in alternating verse between Richard and Mildred, tells their love story and their fight to be married in the eyes of the law.  Set against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement this book ties in to significant events with photographs and explanations.  Well done.  My school only goes up to grade 5 so I am not sure if I would have it in my library but would highly recommend to the jr. high.
