Americans' right to freedom of assembly has been interpreted over the years to mean the right to peacefully protest. From Vietnam War protests to the Occupy Wall Street movement, protests invoking this right have shown time and again when citizens want change. Modern examples and historical context are used to introduce middle school readers to this civil right. The main content includes landmark Supreme Court cases, information on the Civil Rights movement, and background on the Bill of Rights as a whole. This book is an excellent companion to classroom learning about the First Amendment.
