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.

Great read for everyone, adults as well as children. Mrs. Parks tells the story of her childhood in the segregated South, her work with the NAACP, and her decision to carry out the act of civil disobedience that sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
