Diane Nash Biography for Children
Love is Loud will inspire and educate kids (and adults!) as they read the beautifully illustrated Diane Nash biography picture book.
The hardcover children’s book is written at a level that young children can understand, but the facts are great for all ages.
I was already familiar with Diane Nash’s work in the civil rights movement, but still learned a lot reading this kid’s book.
This is an important part of our history that is relevant today.
Love is Loud is a great book to add to your Black History Month reading list, but, of course, it can be read year round.
Love is Loud: How Diane Nash Led the Civil Rights Movement
Pub Date January 10, 2023
Diane grew up in the southside of Chicago in the 1940s.
As a university student, she visited the Tennessee State Fair in 1959.
Shocked to see a bathroom sign that read For Colored Women, Diane learned that segregation in the South went beyond schools—it was part of daily life.
She decided to fight back, not with anger or violence, but with strong words of truth and action.
Finding a group of like-minded students, including student preacher John Lewis, Diane took command of the Nashville Movement.
They sat at the lunch counters where only white people were allowed and got arrested, day after day.
Leading thousands of marchers to the courthouse, Diane convinced the mayor to integrate lunch counters.
Then, she took on the Freedom Rides to integrate bus travel, garnering support from Martin Luther King Jr. and then the president himself—John F. Kennedy.
