In the great tradition of Howard Zinn, "101 Real Changemakers "offers a "peoples' history" version of the individuals who have shaped our country for middle school students. In the place of founding fathers, presidents, and titans of industry, are profiles of those who courageously fought for social justice in America: Tecumseh, Harriet Tubman, Mark Twain, Cesar Chavez, Rachel Carson, Harvey Milk, and many more. Michele Bollinger lives in Washington, DC, with her two children and husband, sportswriter Dave Zirin. She teaches high school social studies. Ages 9+.
