This inspiring story of little-known civil rights champion Oscar Chapman reminds readers that one person can truly make a difference.

On Easter Sunday 1939, Marian Anderson performed at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial for a crowd of over 75,000 people. The person largely responsible for putting her there was a white man, Oscar Chapman. When Chapman learned that Marian Anderson was not allowed to sing at Constitution Hall because of the color of her skin, Chapman helped produce a landmark concert that?for at least one evening?bridged the color divide to bring a city and much of the nation together. Award-winning author Deborah Hopkinson tells the inspirational story of Oscar ChapmanÕs lifelong commitment to ending bigotry. Illustrator Leonard JenkinsÕs remarkable illustrations recreate a bygone era and pay tribute to remarkable real-life people and a magical moment in modern history. An authorÕs note provides additional historical context.
