Goin' Someplace Special
by Patricia C. McKissack;  illustrated by Jerry Pinkney

There's a place in this 1950s southern town where all are welcome, no matter what their skin color...and 'Tricia Ann knows how to get there. To her, it's someplace special and she wants to go by herself. When her grandmother sees that she's ready, she hurries to catch the bus. But she must sit in the back behind the Jim Crow sign. Still, for each hurtful sign there's a friend around the corner. And her grandmother's words, "You are somebody, no better no worse than anybody else in this world," lift her spirits.
