I am Rosa Parks Young readers will be drawn into this account of Rosa Parks' life by the engaging format which combines bold cartoon-style illustration with speech bubbles and a chatty first person narrative to tell the dramatic story of her act of protest and its consequences for the wider fight for civil rights. It tells how her childhood confrontations with injustices developed her strength of character and an ability to stand up for herself, qualities that famously resulted in her defiance of the laws of segregation when she refused to give up her seat to a white person on a public bus and her arrest sparked a widespread boycott of the buses leading to the outlawing of its divisive policies. An afterword includes some archive photographs and a timeline of events.
