Publisher Comments:

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. "The simplicity and candor of this courageous woman's voice makes these compelling events even more moving and dramatic." ? Publishers Weekly, starred review

Synopsis:

In this straightforward, compelling autobiography, Rosa Parks writes candidly about the civil rights movement and her active role in it. Photos.
