Praise For Thurgood Marshall: The Making of America #6

"Kanefield's narrative is lively, and she provides important context where needed, such as how even though Marshall and Dr. King agreed on the need for change, Marshall did not agree on King's strategy of civil disobedience.An important addition to a highly useful series."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Provides a well-rounded look not only at the life of Marshall, but at the events in the world that shaped him into the man he was, and how he in turn helped shape the world for future generations." 

— School Library Connection

"Insets and in-text explanations smoothly bring readers up to speed on key concepts such as the 'equalization strategy'."

— The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
