About this item

“A captivating read.” —Kirkus Reviews 
 
They threw rocks at the school windows. Villagers refused to sell Miss Crandall groceries or let her students attend the town church. Her schoolhouse was mysteriously set on fire. The town authorities dragged her to jail and put her on trial for breaking the law. 
 
Her crime? Trying to teach African American girls geography, history, reading, philosophy, and chemistry. 
 
Exciting and eye-opening, this account of the heroine of Canterbury, Connecticut, and her elegant white schoolhouse at the center of town will give readers a glimpse of what it is like to try to change the world when few agree with you.
