Riché D. Richardson (2020)

Learn about the life of civil rights activist Rosa Parks:
her work with the NAACP, bus boycotts, and her lifelong fight against racial inequality.

Throughout her life, Rosa Parks repeatedly challenged racial violence and the prejudiced systems protecting its perpetrators. Her refusal to move to the back of a segregated bus ignited a boycott that lasted 381 days and helped transform civil rights activism into a national movement. But this work came at an enormous risk and a personal price. Riché D. Richardson details the life of Rosa Parks.
