Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott by Connie Colwell Miller


Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott by Connie Colwell Miller

Tells the story of Rosa Park's 1955 arrest for not giving up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus, and the boycott it sparked. Written in graphic-novel format.


Bold inking and coloring by a studio of DC and Marvel veterans give the pages a polished, dynamic look... This noncondescending volume represents a shot in the arm for a category of children's publishing too prone to blandness...
