This Generation of Americans
A Story of the Civil Rights Movement It is August 1963, and 13 year old Clayton Banks is a month away from starting high school. If life were simply about playing and watching baseball, Clayton would be in nirvana. But the Civil Rights Movement is changing the world around him, and Clayton not only wants to understand it, he wants to participate. His brother, John Jr., is home from college for a month and plans on going to the March on Washington with friends from school. John’s militancy is a catalyst for Clayton to discover what he believes in. Their father, a respected dentist, thinks the movement is ball of trouble-makers who will only lead to hard times for blacks. Clayton must decide if he wants to defy his father or stay quiet about his own beliefs.
