Rosa Parks: my story
Rosa Parks is best known for the day she refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus, sparking the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott. Yet there is much more to her story than this one act of defiance. In this straightforward, compelling autobiography, Rosa Parks talks candidly about the civil rights movement and her active role in it. Her dedication is inspiring; her story is unforgettable. An ALA Notable Book, "American Bookseller" Pick of the Lists, and ALA Best Book for Young Adults. B&W photos.
