A biography of the Alabama black woman whose refusal to give up her seat on a bus helped establish the civil rights movement.

Holiday House
In 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white person on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, even though she was breaking the law. She was arrested, and African Americans throughout the city boycotted buses. Rosa Parks's courage to fight injustice led many to call her the "Mother of the Civil Rights Movement."

A picture book of Rosa Parks is about Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was an African American activist. The book is a bibliography on Rosa Parks beginning with the time she was born and goes into the experiences she had during the times of segregation. The book tells the famous story of Rosa Parks and her doing sit ins and of course her refusing to give up her seat on the bus. Rosa Parks was an influential African American leader and I would recommend this book because of the history in the book. The book shows how African American came up through segregation and the different obstacles they had to face.

"Rosa Parks was born in Tuskegee, Alabama, on February 4, 1913. When Rosa was young, discrimination against African American was common."
