Rosa Parks - used book

ID: 2413867

Rosa Parks has been called the mother of the civil rights movement. Parks was a seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama, when, in 1955, she refused to give up her seat on a city bus to a white passenger. She was arrested and convicted of violating a local ordinance, but her act of defiance sparked a citywide boycott of the bus system by blacks that lasted more than a year. This single act of defiance was the catalyst for Martin Luther King, Jr., then an unknown clergyman, to rise into the national spotlight. Ultimately, the U.S. Supreme Court outlawed segregation on city buses. In "Rosa Parks", Douglas Brinkley's talent as an award-winning historian shines as he brilliantly examines an American heroine in the context of this tumultuous time in US history.
