A poetic tribute to the victims of the racially motivated church bombing that served as a seminal event in the struggle for civil rights In the eyes of the world were on Birmingham Alabama a flashpoint for the civil rights movement Birmingham was one of the most segregated cities in the United States C. Published in 2007 by WordsongInterest Level 6th 10th GradeThis is a book of poetry is from the perspective of young girl in Birmingham who eventually faces a gruesome death due to her race This book chronicles part of the Civil Rights Movement through poetry and vivid pictures that portray various aspects of the struggle for eual rights The young girl's voice is heard throughout the photographs as narrations of each event Eventually the girl faces her death and her name is revealed to be a compilation of the voices of several girls that perished in the same way and place The pace and tone of this book are uick and somewhat fearful Each poem increases the intensity of the events and creates a stir of emotion in the reader The point of view explored also creates a sense of innocence and faith that push the reader to want to find out if the main character succeeds in her struggle for eual rightsAlthough this is a short book I think that the verse and photographs meld gracefully and allow the reader to move along with the events that seem to happen so uickly At the end the author pays homage to the girls that perished and there is an author's note about the various events presented and the photographs in the book Each page is stylized with red streaks juxtaposed against the black and white photos and pages which gives the impression of conflict between white and black as well as of the impending devastating events
