              The Forbidden Schoolhouse: The True and Dramatic Story of Prudence Crandall and Her Students

              The Forbidden Schoolhouse: The True and Dramatic Story of Prudence Crandall and Her Students (Hardback, Annotated edition)

              By Jurmain, Suzanne

              They threw rocks and rotten eggs at the school windows. Villagers refused to sell Miss Crandall groceries or let her students attend the town church. Mysteriously, her schoolhouse was set on fire--by whom and how remains a mystery. The town authorities dragged her to jail and put... her on trial for breaking the law. Her crime? Trying to teach African American girls geography, history, reading, philosophy, and chemistry. Trying to open and maintain one of the first African American schools in America. Exciting and eye-opening, this account of the heroine of Canterbury, Connecticut, and her elegant white schoolhouse at the center of town will give readers a glimpse of what it is like to try to change the world when few agree with you.
