To Establish Justice by Patricia McKissack and attorney Arlene Zarembka examines the role the Supreme Court has played in shaping the civil rights for various people of all ages, races and nationalities. Using concise and accessible language, McKissack and Zarembka examine the evolution of civil rights and the struggle of various groups to obtain them. Educators can use this book to provide their students with an easy way to understand how the court system operates and how as American society has changed, so have interpretations of justice and equality. The authors have written a compelling and provocative text that urges readers to ask: “What is the meaning of JUSTICE?” 

This videoconference series on civil rights and citizenship is intended for middle school and high school students. One focus of the program is the difference between fact and opinion in the court system. Participating schools are asked to read the book. Teachers, if you are interested in participating in this interactive, informational videoconference series, contact Rebecca Morrison at Cooperating School Districts. For New Links to New Learning members, this series is now $650; for non-members, the series is $750.
