Robert H. Mayer

Robert H. Mayer is the award-winning author of When the Children Marched: The Birmingham Civil Rights Movement and editor of The Civil Rights Act of 1964. As a teacher, Mayer’s passion has been and continues to be making history relevant and accessible to young people. His time spent in Jackson, Canton, and McComb, Mississippi, as well as meeting scholars and activists integral to the civil rights movement, fueled Mayer’s desire to write In the Name of Emmett Till. He resides in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania with his wife Jan, where he continues to write, teach, and tutor young people in a local middle school.
