Paula Young Shelton, the daughter of Civil Rights activist Andrew Young, brings a child’s unique perspective to an important chapter in America’s history. Paula grew up in the deep south with discrimination and segregation. With an activist father and a community of leaders surrounding her, including Uncle Martin (Martin Luther King, Jr.), Paula watched and listened to the struggles, eventually joining with her family—and thousands of others—in the historic march from Selma to Montgomery.
