Rosa Parks a forty-two yearl old took the bus after a long and tiring day on December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama. The bus was divided into blacks and white. The white passengers were not to sit next or even across from the blacks. Every the bus was full the blacks had to give up their seat to the white but Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat and was arrested for not following the Jim Crow Laws. After being tired of the way the blacks were treated Rosa Parks decided to find a leade

Word for word, this book says: "[Rosa Parks] was not a civil rights activist". Except she was.
Every time I think of what my people have been through to make it possible for me to have the simple pleasure of riding a bus, using a bathroom or eating in any restaurant I want I lift my head with pride and thanksgiving. This book traces the events in the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott which began in December 1955 and changed the course of the civil rights movement for ever. Grades 2-5.
