Description
In December 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, 42-year-old seamstress Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus to a white passenger. Her arrest led to a year-long boycott of the city's bus system, led by Martin Luther King Jr., and is now considered the beginning of the American civil rights movement. The author of the 2013 Ann M. Sperber Biography Award winner Cronkite, historian Douglas Brinkley here explains how Parks's dignity and resolve were crucial to the boycott's success.

"Douglas Brinkley's fine biography of this decorous and determined woman, who was an inspiration to both Nelson Mandela and Kofi Annan, is also the story of her times: a shameful era in America's history that Parks helped bring to a close."Times (London)
