White Socks OnlyBook - 1996
Grandma tells the story about her first trip alone into town during the days when segregation still existed in Mississippi. An elderly African American tells her granddaughter about her childhood in the segregated South. There was a "White's Only" sign on a nearby fountain, but that didn't bother this child--after all, she was wearing her clean white socks. Evelyn Coleman combines memories of her Southern childhood with magical realism to create a story that resonates with power. Tyrone Geter's full-color illustrations convey great feeling and emotion.
