THIS SEVENTH VOLUME OF THE Century Kids follows two rebels--in the best sense of the word. The first is Chuck, the great-great-grandson of the patriarch, Lionel Aldrich, whose family we have followed through five generations of the twentieth century. His rebellion, so typical of the decade, is against unfair authority. The second rebel is Sojie, who takes a stand against the established practice of the times as she returns with her mother to the South to participate in a lunch-counter demonstration demanding equal service for blacks. Both young people typify the awakening social consciousness that characterized the decade. AS IN THE EARLIER CENTURY KIDS volumes, the events and artifacts of the decade provide a backdrop for the narrative. The 1960s are a particularly inspiring decade with the growing success of Dr. Martin Luther King's nonviolent protest movement--yet it was a tragic decade as well, as young idealists grow to admire young President John F. Kennedy, only to see him brutally assassinated. IN ADDITION TO AN EXCITING STORY, the Hooblers provide an historical afterword, explaining some of the more interesting aspects of their research into the decade, as well as a timeline outlining what was going on in the world in which the story unfolds.
