Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Core Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.

Horn Book Review

Each volume examines the creation, background, and inspiration behind a political protest movement. In clear, accessible prose, Harris unpacks the cultural impact and reaction to events and clearly strives to consider opposing viewpoints. In particular, Black Lives and Current Age provide much-needed, balanced portrayals of contemporary activism. Photos and graphs enhance the information. Engagement exercises are peppered throughout.
