Publisher Description - Inside front cover
On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of a bus and give up her seat to a white man. Her quiet refusal to surrender her dignity sparked the Montgomery bus boycott, which eventually ended segregation on buses. But the boycott did not start or end there, and here Newberry Medalist Russell Freedman breathes life into all the key personalities and events that contributed to the yearlong struggle, a major victory in the civil rights movement. This compelling and poignant volume, illustrated with powerful black-and-white photographs from the period, is sure to be an essential addition to the civil rights canon.
