Description

Library of Congress summary: “Discusses how the black community of Montgomery, Alabama, staged the 1955 boycott to end segregation on pubic buses.” The book starts with the story of Rosa Parks and how she made history by refusing to surrender her seat to a white man on a public bus when the “white” section overflowed. She was arrested. “It was the opening drumbeat of a march that would shatter southern traditions and alter the course of America.” The book also profiles Martin Luther King, Jr., until his death in 1968. The photographs throughout the book show buses, assemblies, crowds, and portraits.
