After Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white person, she became known as the Mother of the Civil Rights Movement. But long before her arrest, she knew that the laws separating blacks from whites were wrong. Learn how her family encouraged her to stick up for herself. Read about her active role in the NAACP. Discover how she persevered for Civil Rights during the trying Montgomery bus boycott and the difficult years that followed.
With great sensitivity, best-selling author Kenneth C. Davis describes Rosa Parks's decisive courage and the hardships she endured. Noteworthy photographs and dramatic black-and-white illustrations by Sergio Martinez capture the turbulent emotions of the Civil Rights era.
