Rosa Parks Freedom Rider (Hardcover)
|Author: Ruth Ashby|
|She just wouldn''t get up--and with that simple act Rosa Parks struck a blow against injustice. Her refusal to give her seat to a white man mobilized the black community for a citywide bus boycott that led to a landmark Supreme Court decision. She showed that one person, without violence, could change the course of history. Award-winning author Ruth Ashby beautifully conveys Park''s dignity and determination.|
