When black bus rider Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white passenger in 1955, she helped ignite a civil rights struggle across the country. This book examines this historic event from multiple perspectives, including those of Parks herself, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., and Parks's husband, Raymond. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards.
