A final chapter gives readers tips for how to improve their communication skills and prevent stereotyping in their communities. History and current events topics covered include: Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka; Cesar Chavez's fight for unions; the fight for women's right to vote; Japanese Americans who fought for the United States in World War II; lobbying for laws that help students with special education needs and physical disabilities thrive in school; Moses Fleetwood Walker and Jackie Robinson as the first African-Americans in pro baseball; and Native American leaders.
