Summary, etc.:
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 the social injustice. Yet, her simple act of courage started a chain of events that forever shaped the landscape of American race relations. Now, decades after her quiet defiance inspired the modern civil rights movement, Mrs. Parks?s own words tell of her courageous life, her passion for freedom and equality, and her strong faith. Reflections by Rosa Parks celebrates the principles and convictions that guided her through a remarkable life. It is a printed record of her legacy?her lasting message to a world still struggling to live in harmony. Including historic and beautiful pictures, this collection of Rosa Parks?s reflections includes topics like dealing with fear, facing injustice, developing character and determination, faith in God, and her hope for the future. ?I want to be remembered as a person who stood up to injustice,? writes Rosa Parks, ?who wanted a better world for young people.? With Mrs. Parks?s words of wisdom, humility, and compassion, this book will inspire people of all races to carry on her great legacy.
