Total Pages: 180
This book We’ve got a job follows the experiences of four young people in the May 1963 Alabama Children’s March. It is an informative and amazing account of the struggle the blacks had in their quest for freedom. It is incredible to see the attitudes and actions of some members of society. The tenacity of many in the black community is highly commendable, they were trying to fight a huge system by peaceful means.

This work addresses a dark and regretful time in our nation’s history. We’ve got a job gives us an inside picture of one group and their oppression of others. That one group in a society would so oppress another is hard to understand these many years later.

There are many pictures and personal interviews throughout the book. Through these the reader gains an inside look at this turning point in our nation. This valuable document gives us a look at a segment of history which should not be forgotten. This shows us how the young people had the desire to stand for a cause and make a difference. (rev.
