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

"This series of three tapes begins in 1954 when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on an Alabama bus, a simple, yet courageous act, that ushered in the modern-day civil rights movement, but as the seriers reveals, it also sparked a debate over what strategy African Americans should use to gain equality and human rights: integration, separation, or revolution. This series serves as a history lesson for the young and a reminder to those who lived through those times that the issue of African American political power is complex and the field of thought on the subject is diverse"--Container
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
