Clyde Thomason is proud to have an older brother who guards the Freedom Train. It's 1947, and the train is traveling to all forty-eight states, carrying important documents such as the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. Clyde is lucky that the train is stopping in Atlanta. In the segregated South the train will only stop at cities that agree to integrate the crowds lining up to glimpse its famous contents. Clyde has been chosen to recite the Freedom Pledge, but he's afraid that he'll chicken out. It doesn't help that he's the favorite target of the class bully. When the bully tries to beat him up, Clyde is shocked that an African-American boy, William, comes to his rescue. He's even more shocked that William's family lives in the rich -- and white -- part of town. But why is he so surprised? And why can't he be open about his friendship with William? When William's family is threatened, Clyde must make a choice: Will he have the courage to speak out to protect William's freedom? Evelyn Coleman paints a touching, often humorous picture of the 1940s South. Based on the real journey of the Freedom Train, this is the inspirational story of a young boy's awakening to the injustices around him -- and to the idea that things could change.

Fantastic story for young readers to discover their own personal bias. It helps to create dialogue concerning social justice in the classroom. Highly recommended!

Students enjoyed reading and discussing the book. They were able to talk about racial prejudice in a positive way, if that makes sense.

I rated it 3 stars because it was educational. Although, I think it wouldn't appeal to alot of children. Find out what your child's interests for books are before buying this.

This is an excellent book for young people to learn important lessons about American values and racism. Illustrates how racism is learned and how one young man can make a big difference.
