Product description

Meet Rosa Parks: a brave woman who changed the world. How did she do that? By sitting down on a bus. No, that isn’t a joke. Nothing much was funny about the racist world that Rosa grew up in, in which black people couldn’t go to the same schools as whites, or take the same seats on a bus. When Rosa refused to give up her seat to a white passenger in 1955, she was arrested – causing a storm that shook America. How did Rosa learn to be so brave? Find out in this book, which tells you about her childhood, her life and her iconic role in the fight for equal rights.

  • Exciting look at an icon of the Civil Rights Movement
  • Full-colour facts, stories, a glossary and a timeline
  • Focuses on Rosa’s childhood and key achievements
  • Explains her special role in the famous bus boycott
