About the Book

In 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white person on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, even though she was breaking the law. She was arrested, and African Americans throughout the city boycotted buses. Rosa Parks’s courage to fight injustice led many to call her the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement.”
