Description

Gloria Finds Her Voice is the story of a young African American girl who initially struggled in school because of racism during the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. As a result of her experience, she developed selective mutism (an anxiety disorder in which a person is unable to speak in certain social situations). She eventually becomes more sure of her abilities and self-worth when she attends a more supportive school. This book is filled with beautiful illustrations and a real plot which highlights the power of great teachers and supportive school settings.
