White Socks Only – (Albert Whitman Prairie Description:

White Socks Only When Grandma was a little girl in Mississippi she sneaked into town one day. It was a hot day–the kind of hot where a firecracker might light up by itself. But when this little girl saw the Whites Only sign on the water fountain she had no idea what she would spark when she took off her shoes and–wearing her clean white socks–stepped up to drink. Bravery defiance and a touch of magic win out over hatred in this acclaimed story by Elevelyn Coleman. Tyrone Geters paintings richly evoke its heat mood and legendary spirit.
