Booklist - 12/01/2022 This picture-book biography honors Diane Nash, a significant figure in the civil rights movement during the 1960s and beyond. Born and raised in Chicago, Nash left home to attend college in Nashville but was appalled by the injustice and indignities endured by Black people living under segregation laws in the South. A proponent of nonviolent resistance, she worked for change through protests such as the Nashville lunch counter sit-ins and the Freedom Rides. Though harassed, threatened, jailed, and sometimes afraid, she was never deterred from working for justice. Written in direct but poetic phrases with occasional rhymes, the text traces Nash’s path from childhood through the tumultuous 1960s, promoting nonviolent principles to bring about change and persuading others to join the movement. The book's section on the lunch counter sit-ins is particularly effective. Collier, who previously collaborated with Wallace on Between the Lines (2018), contributes a series of strong, dynamic illustrations created with watercolor and cut-paper collage. A fitting portrayal of Diane Nash, a civil rights leader who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2022. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
