The Little Girl Who Fought the Great Depression: Shirley Temple and 1930s America by John F. Kasson Look out for this book, coming on the 15th April 2014. Maybe this will lead to further recognition, which I assumed would happen in her passing! Let’s hope if they make any sort of documentary, television series or film, they do it well (because Shirley Temple can so easily be done badly, as is the case with that terrible Child Star film from 2001..)

The First Black Girl Scout Troop

In 1917, five years after its inception, the first troop of African American girls was formed. This photo, taken in the late 1930s, is of the first African-American troop in the Dixie Region, which covered the Southern states. Source: Girlscouts.org
