Sarah’s Long Walk tells the story of a five-year-old African American  
girl named Sarah Roberts who walked past five white schools to attend  
the poor and densely crowded all-black Abiel Smith School on Boston's  
Beacon Hill. In response, her father Benjamin Roberts initiated the  
historic court case that began a century of struggle, culminating in  
1954 with the unanimous decision in Brown v. Board of Education.

Reverend Kendrick is Senior Minister at First Church Boston.
