    Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom
    In her award-winning memoir, Turning on the Road to Freedom: My Story on the 1965 Selma Voting Rights March, Lowery tells the true story of the brave young activist who protested in nonviolent direct action to effect change against racial injustices throughout the South and the United States. It is an adventurous memoir that appeals to young readers and illustrates an honest and true-to-life depiction of racial segregation in 1965.
