Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

Before Martin Luther King, before Rosa Parks, there was Barbara Rose Johns, who, in 1950, as a high school junior led to a peaceful protest to replace the tar paper buildings at her school with something better. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court and helped outlaw segregation. Illus. with photos.
