White Socks Only is written by Evelyn Coleman, illustrated by Tyrone Geter and read by Amber Rose Tamblyn. When Grandma was a little girl in Mississippi, she sneaked into town one hot summer day. But when she saw the “Whites Only” sign on the water fountain, she had no idea what she would spark when she took off her shoes and – wearing her clean white socks – stepped up to drink.
