Joseph's grandpa could do almost anything with his hands. He could play the piano, throw a curveball, and tie a triple bowline knot in three seconds flat. But in the 1950s and 60s, he could not bake bread at the Wonder Bread factory. Factory bosses said white people would not want to eat bread touched by the hands of the African Americans who worked there.

Margaret H. Mason combines little-known labor history with the Civil Rights movements in this quiet intergenerational story about fighting for equality and how it shapes the future for everyone, including people we love and care about.
