This is meant to be a book for young teens but I loved it as well. We picked it up after Rosa Parks died. It was fascinating to read about Rosa'a childhood and to get the "behind the scenes" of her life and every thing that really ahppened that fateful day!

This is the TRUE story of this brave lady, written in her words with a ghostwriter.

This well-known story is considerably refreshed by Parks's personal narrative, punctuated by numerous black-and-white photographs. In simple, gracious, compelling language she describes her childhood, family life, and elusive educational opportunities. She explains how her husband encouraged and supported her participation in civil rights activities, and provides with clarity the generally paltry regard for the contributions of black women by the movement's organizers. In this recounting of her life, she corrects some media-created distortions of events. Her references to so many people may overwhelm some readers at times, but this does not diminish the overall impact of a wonderful, warm autobiography.

The story of the Rosa Parks incident on the bus. There was alot I didn't know about the incident and about her life. It was a good read but some parts were hard to read. It's sad that people were such racists back then.

This was a very moving story in Mrs. Rosa Parks own words. Very easy and quick reading for the young as well as the elderly to enjoy. Also, many personal photos. Very good read. DG

Taken from the back of the book."On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a segregated but, sparking the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott. " This story and many other of Rosa Parks defiance are in this eye-opening book. Some of these stories I have heard and others I have not. This book's target group is older children and young adult.
