V/A  Brimner, Larry Dane.  Black and White.  Calkins Creek, 2011.  112p.  978-1-59078-766-3.  16.95.  From opposite ends of the racial spectrum, two fiercely determined men deal with the difficulties of their day.  Both Fred Shuttlesworth and Eugene (Bull) Connor took center stage as they confronted segregation issues in Birmingham, Alabama.  A handsome text is supported with readable document reproductions, unmarred black and white photos and interesting side bars.  Can be a useful supplement to any U. S. History text and civil rights discussions.  E.M. Roublow, LAPL, San Pedro Branch.
