"I let somebody call me 'nigger.' It wasn't just any old body, either; it was my friend. That really hurt." -- Amitiyah Elayne Hyman Martin Luther King, Jr., dreamed of a day when black children were judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. His eloquent charge became the single greatest inspiration for the achievement of racial justice in America. In her powerful fourth book in the Children of Conflict series, Laurel Holliday explores how far we have come as she presents thirty-eight African-Americans who share their experiences as Children of the Dream. "I was brought up with white Barbie dolls of impossible proportions and long silky blonde hair -- neither of which I possessed. As a child I believed what I was taught, and I wasn't taught to love myself for who I am -- an African-American." -- Charisse Nesbit The unforgettable people we hear from are young and old, rich and poor, from inner cities, suburbia, and rural America. In chronicles that are highly personal, funny, tragic, and triumphant, the contributors tell us what it is like coming of age stigmatized by the color of their skin, yet proud of their heritage and culture. Their voices, their courage, their resilience -- and their understanding -- offer hope for us all.

Rucker C. Johnson makes a strong, well-argued case that the only reason that integration failed is that we did not try long and hard enough.
