Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

She just wouldnt get up—and with that simple act Rosa Parks struck a blow against injustice. Her refusal to give her seat to a white man mobilized the black community for a citywide bus boycott that led to a landmark Supreme Court decision. She showed that one person, without violence, could change the course of history. Award-winning author Ruth Ashby beautifully conveys Parks dignity and determination.
