Nine-year-old Ron loves going to the Lake City Public Library to look through all the books on airplanes and flight. Today, Ron is ready to take out books by himself . But in the segregated world of South Carolina in the 1950s, Ron's obtaining his own library card is not just a small rite of passage'it is a young man's fi rst courageous mission. Here is an inspiring story, based on Ron McNair's life, of how a little boy, future scientist, and Challenger astronaut desegregated his library through peaceful resistance.
