Skip to content 21 August August 20, Rosa By Nikki Giovanni, Illustrated by Bryan Collier Over sixty years after her refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama city bus, Rosa Parks is still one of the most important figures in the American civil rights movement. This book is a tribute to her courageous action and the events that followed. White passengers sat in the front and black passengers sat in the back. That is until Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white passenger. It was led by the young minister, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
In the early s, nearly four decades after Rosa Parks, the mother of the civil rights movement, refused to move to another seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, her niece Shirley McCauley asked the question her aunt had been politely declining to answer for years: what really happened on 1 December ? The bus driver, believing he had authority under Jim Crow , demanded that her aunt and the other African American passengers move to a row further back in the colored section. Three of them did; Auntie Rosa refused. We used to spend weekends at her home in Detroit for family dinners, gathering around the television set to watch Lawrence Welk or Mitch Miller , running around on her porch or in her backyard until supper was ready. I have a lot of lovely memories of celebrating birthdays and Christmases with her and Uncle Park — we were like the Waltons, though with more children. My aunt always put family first. Her father had 10 siblings, and she knew [her cousins and their children].
