This black history book is the definitive look at the life and times of one of the most influential and celebrated women in the Civil Rights Movement: the indelible Rosa Parks. Told in her own voice and from her memories, Parks’ story recounts her youth and upbringing in Alabama and the events and circumstances that led to her spark-plug act of defiance.
In December of 1955, Parks was riding in a city bus in Montgomery, Ala. As more people boarded, the bus began to fill to capacity. When the whites-only section was filled, the driver told parks to move so a white man could sit. She refused. In standing up for herself by refusing to stand up for a white man, Rosa Parks instigated a bus boycott that would show African-Americans that their true power lay in their collective numbers.
Parks’ story is must-learn material for anyone interested in learning black history. Purchase it today from this black-owned business and share the information you gather from it with those you love. It is the defining tale of a generation of freedom fighters that paved the way for the Black Lives Matter movement.
