Over thirty essays examine the legacy of Marlo Thomas' children's book "Free to Be ... You and Me," which promoted individuality, acceptance, and diversity during the beginning stages of the women's rights movement in the early 1970s.
If you grew up in the era of mood rings and lava lamps, you probably remember "Free to Be . . . You and Me"--the groundbreaking children's record, book, and television special that debuted in 1972. Conceived by actress and producer Marlo Thomas and promoted by "Ms." magazine, it captured the spirit of the growing women's movement and inspired girls and boys to challenge stereotypes, value cooperation, and respect diversity. In this lively collection marking the fortieth anniversary of "Free to Be . . . You and Me," thirty-two contributors explore the creation and legacy of this popular children's classic.
Featuring a prologue by Marlo Thomas, "When We Were Free to Be" offers an unprecedented insiders' view by the original creators, as well as accounts by activists and educators who changed the landscape of childhood in schools, homes, toy stores, and libraries nationwide. Essays document the rise of non-sexist children's culture during the 1970s and address how "Free to Be" still speaks to families today.
