It has been only forty years since the fateful day that Mrs. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, yet the chain of events that she set in motion has changed the world forever.

Quiet strength : the faith, the hope, and the heart of a woman who changed a nation by Rosa Parks( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
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

Rosa Parks by Douglas Brinkley( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Rosa Parks, an African American seamstress in 1955 Alabama, had no idea she was changing history when, work-weary, she refused to surrender her seat to a white passenger on a segregated bus. Today, she is immortalized for the defiance that sent her to jail & triggered a bus boycott that catapulted Martin Luther King, Jr., into the national spotlight. Who was she, before & after her historic act, & how did that act sound the death knell for Jim Crow? Historian Douglas Brinkley, whose "vigorous language" & "marvelous portraits" (Stephen Ambrose) have made him an acclaimed author & a media favorite, brings mid-century America alive in this brilliant examination of a celebrated heroine in the context of her life & tumultuous times. Here in this biography are the quiet dignity, hope, courage, & humor which have made this twentieth-century everywoman a living legend--an eye-opener of a book for students of history, politics, the black experience, & human nature
