NO FEAR FOR FREEDOM: THE STORY OF THE FRIENDSHIP 9
Illustrated by Vanessa J. Thompson
Hard Cover

The Civil Rights Movement won a lot of victories. Many of the icons of this movement will never be forgotten. However, we must also make sure that the work of other activists will be remembered too. They were everyday people who fought against discrimination and prejudice. Unfortunately, they may never find
their names in a history book, on a display board or in a museum. As communities, we must discover these amazing citizens and honor them. The Friendship 9, a group of students and activists, claimed a rightful place in history by challenging inequality and unfair laws. Their efforts should always inspire us to take care of each other, learn from our struggles and most importantly, continue to create a world free of racism and social injustice.

    In the words of my father, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.” I believe that this quote describes the 1961 bravery of the Friendship 9. The story of these unsung heroes is a great example of the courage exemplified by the young people of the 1960’s Movement era. Their actions were not just about seeking change in discriminatory practices against them, but to make things better for the generations that would follow them. I applaud Kimberly Johnson for telling this important story and pray that through this book, today’s youth and the next generation will be inspired and encouraged to continue the Movement by standing up for what is right, for truth, and for justice.
