Thieves Paradise

By Eric Jerome Dickey

 

Review by De'angelo H.

 

The story is about African Americans in Birmingham, Alabama that were wanting to protest segregation, but their lives and jobs were at stake, so they hesitated to protest.  I liked this book because it shows how African Americans fought for their rights.  My favorite character in the book is James Bevel.  I related to some of the characters in this book because I fight everyday in this world for peace and justice for all young African Americans.  I would recommend this book because it is powerful and inspiring.  If I could change the title, I would call it " The Life We Have to Fight."
