On December 1, 1955, seamstress Rosa Parks took a stand by refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white man. Her defiance against an unjust system triggered the Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped spark the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Parks demonstrated the effectiveness of unified peaceful protests, and throughout her life she advocated an end to violence, discrimination, and injustice, eventually establishing the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self-Development.
This updated edition of Rosa Parks includes fresh insights on the life and legacy of the woman known as the "mother of the civil rights movement". The book is published by Chelsea House Publishers, a leading publisher of educational material.
