Colorblind: Leah Harper Bowron

 

Within this world there even in the present day are people who preach, hate, discrimination and are prejudice. Some dislike others because of the color of their skin while thers because of someone’s race or nationality. Within the pages of this book the reader learns some harsh realities about narrow minded educators, parents who teach disrespect and one young girl named Lisa Parker who lived her life in fear of bullies, insults and yet some day somehow she would hopefully overcome and remember the words of the late Dr. Martin Luther King: Free at Last: Free at Last: Thank God Almighty we are free at last! But, before she or anyone in her class or school would understand the meaning of his words we have to explain what she went through, how she dealt with the torments, sneers and insults of two bullies named David and Will who were relentless, fearless and took no prisoners because they thought they could and no one would stop them. The issues brought to light deal with desegregation, prejudice, bullying and racism within Montgomery Alabama during the time of the assassination of Dr. King. The teachers in this school that have to deal with a new Black Teacher named Miss Loomis should be ashamed of the way they shunned and ignored her. Lisa is a student in her class and through her we learn what happens when one young child stands up for all.
