"Stirring history...that capture[s] the ordinary person who made a difference."
From the Publisher
Annotation In 1955, an African-American woman named Rosa Parks changed history when she defied the segregationist "Jim Crow" laws of the times by refusing to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. Her action is widely cited as the beginning of the American civil rights movement. This introductory biography explores Parks's life both before and after that historic event. Illustrated with watercolor paintings.
First Line Rosa Parks was born in Tuskegee, Alabama, on February 4, 1913.
