Who Was Rosa Parks?
A girl who liked fishing
A teenager who cleaned houses to make money
The woman who took a stand by sitting on a bus
In 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give her bus seat to a white passenger in Montgomery, Alabama. This seemingly small act triggered civil rights protests across America and earned Rosa Parks the title “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement.” This biography has black-and-white illustrations throughout.
