Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson

Told in verse, Woodson's memoir shares her story of growing up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow, and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement during her childhood living in South Carolina and New York.
