Rosetta, Rosetta, Sit by Me!A fictionalized biography of Frederick Douglas’ daughter, Rosetta. Douglas was a former slave who became a strong advocate for equality. He believed that his children should have the right to attend any school they chose, and worked fervently to secure a quality education for them.

A quick read that really personalizes the struggle for integrated education. The way that Rosetta and her family dealt with such prejudice, and the value they place on education, is admirable.
