Book Information

Title
A Taste of Colored Water
Illustrator
Book Publisher
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2008
Fiction/Non-Fiction

In the early 1960s in Southern America two youngsters heard from a friend that there were fountains in the city labeled Colored. The children speculated on just what color was the water in these
fountains. When LuLu and Jelly go with grandpa to the city a Freedom Fighter rally was in process. The kids were left in the truck and told not to leave. They left and found a Colored water bubbler. As they were about to take a drink, Grandpa returned and gathered the children to go home. They never got to see the color or to taste colored water.
This story would be an excellent vehicle to explain to early elementary students what was meant by the Jim Crow laws that were in force in America prior to the Civil Rights legislation. A MUST HAVE for every school library.
