About this title


Discusses the bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama, to protest against the infringement of African Americans' civil rights, including the backlash caused by the boycott and the effects of the start of the Civil Rights movement.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up—The wrenching consequences of Rosa Parks's decision that sparked the Civil Rights Movement are depicted in this well-written book. Descriptions of civil rights activism dating back to 1865, including multiple attempts to desegregate streetcars, trains, and buses, provide historical context and a sense of the fervor surrounding discrimination and segregation. The facts of the boycott are documented with supportive news articles, relevant quotations, moving individual stories, and significant court cases. Extra details distinguish this book from similar titles. For example, Aretha tells the little-known story of a courageous white librarian who wrote letters praising the boycott only to commit suicide after she was harassed and ostracized by her community. Photographs-mostly black-and-white but some color-depict significant figures and document incidents such as meetings and carpooling to avoid buses. The final chapters characterize the boycott in terms of its positive influence on other Americans and people around the world.—Margaret Auguste, Franklin Middle School, Somerset, NJ
