Now in paperback - an important moment in history is presented in a cumulative format, accessible to the youngest readers.
In 1955, a young woman named Rosa Parks took a big step for civil rights when she refused to give up her seat on a bus for 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--introducing the civil rights movement, one idea at a time. Take a ride through history in this unique retelling of what happened when one brave woman refused to stand up so that a white passenger could sit down.
