I Will Not Fear by Melba Pattillo Beals

"I Will Not Fear" by Melba Pattillo Beals is her story of faith during the trials of her life starting even at birth all up to to now days.  Her story of faith is so powerful and interesting that once I started reading it I just couldn't put it down.  She is famous for being one of the Little Rock nine African Americans that integrated the High School in Little Rock.  She has gone through things that could break most people but she stood strong in her faith in God.  One thing I thought was a good point that she brought up is that she still faces discrimination in housing for being African American.  Also she really brings up the danger of child offenders and how the stalk their victims or almost victims.  This was a very powerful book that I highly recommend anyone to read.
