Synopsis

Rosa Parks Courageous Citizen by Ruth Ashby

With the simple, courageous act of refusing to relinquish her seat - Rosa Parks struck a blow against racial injustice. She showed what one person, without guns or violence, could do to change the course of history forever. Nelson Mandela claimed she is who inspired us...to be fearless when facing our oppressors. Then, on December 1, 1955, she made a stand on an Alabama bus and her arrest mobilised the black community for a citywide bus boycott that led to a landmark Supreme Court decision and a move toward de-segregation. Award-winning author Ruth Ashby beautifully conveys Park's dignity and determination. Sterling Biographies are packed with information and filled with unique images that include rare documentary photographs, artwork, maps and personal artefacts. Focusing on inventors and innovative thinkers, they present first-person accounts and dramatic events related in an intimate and accessible style.
