Abstract:

Details the positive consequences of one woman's act of defiance in the segregated South, including the Montgomery bus boycott, the repeal of Alabama's race laws, and the strengthening of the civil rights movement. In 1955, a young African American woman named Rosa Parks took a big step for civil rights when she refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white passenger. The bus driver told her to move. Jim Crow laws told her to move. But Rosa Parks stayed where she was, and a chain of events was set into motion that would eventually change the course of American history. Fifty years later, the Bus Ride that Changed History retraces that chain of events by introducing the civil rights movement one idea at a time. Take a ride through history with this unique retelling of what happened when one brave woman refuses to stand up so that a white passenger could sit down.
