A YOUNG GIRL DREAMS OF A BETTER WORLD...The law said America kept the black and white races separate but equal. Growing up in Chickasha, Oklahoma, Ada Sipuel learned that separate was never equal. Once she asked her father why the world was divided by race. He said it shouldn't be. "There's only one Constitution, only one Bible." He also taught her not to be afraid to challenge injustice.Years later, Ada hoped to fight for equality by becoming a lawyer. But Oklahoma's law school would not admit her because of the color of her skin. Her legal struggle for education set off a chain of events that broke down the barriers of injustice across America.Equal Justice: The Courage of Ada Sipuel honors the principles and convictions that exemplified her remarkable life and legacy--and proves that one person can forever change the landscape of a nation.
