Abstract:

On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She was not trying to start a movement. She was simply tired of social injustice and did not think a woman should be forced to stand so that a man could sit down. Yet her simple act of courage set in motion a chain of events that changed forever the landscape of American race relations. Now, forty years after her quiet defiance inspired the modern civil rights movement, Mrs. Parks speaks to us all about her life, her passion for freedom and equality, and her strong faith. Quiet Strength celebrates the principles and convictions that have guided Mrs. Parks through a remarkable life. It is a printed record of her legacy - her lasting message to a world still struggling to live in harmony.
