Praise for Amy Nathan and Round and Round Together

"A snapshot of the civil-rights movement in one city provides insight into the important role of individual communities as change moved through the country...a case study of how citizens of one city both precipitated and responded to the whirlwind of social change around them."--Kirkus Reviews

"A profoundly moving tribute to the intrepid unsung heroes who risked their lives to help bring an end to Baltimore's Jim Crow Era."--Kam Williams, syndicated columnist

"Amy Nathan's book deftly describes the courageous struggle by blacks and whites to end discrimination in the park, the city, and the nation. Readers will walk away with a clearer understanding of segregation and the valiant Americans who fought against this injustice."--Debra Newman Ham, Professor of History, Morgan State University

"Round and Round Together tells the inspiring story of how a generation of college and high school students provided the energy and enthusiasm that ended racial segregation in Baltimore's Gwynn Oak Amusement Park and changed the direction of Maryland's history."--James Henretta, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland

"With clarity and passion, Amy Nathan portrays the struggle of everyday citizens to end racial segregation in Baltimore. This compelling history, for and about young people, is simple but profound like freedom itself."--Taylor Branch, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the trilogy America in the King Years

"[Round and Round Together] covers not just the desegregation fight for Gywnn Oak Amusement Park, but also the broader movement for racial equality in early-to-mid-twentieth century Maryland. Ms. Nathan covers a great deal of material highlighting the efforts of activists to expand access in public accommodations, education, employment, and recreational venues. She does an excellent job connecting those local efforts to developments within the national civil rights movement."--Maryland Historical Magazine
