Description

In 1955, Rosa Parks bravely refused to obey a bus driver who ordered her to give up her seat because she was black. While she is best known for this action that sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Parks had actually been involved in civil rights work for years. This book puts Parkss courageous stance on the bus into the context of her lifelong belief in equality. Readers learn about the Montgomery Bus Boycott in detail, review her lifes most important events in a timeline, and appreciate the brave sacrifices of the first lady of the civil rights movement.
