    Very Interesting

    I just recently read this book and was hooked from the first page. It is the classic story of the African-American woman that you all know, told from Rosa herself! This was told with gripping and understandable language that will work the book onto everyone's bookshelf.

    Thank you Mrs. Parks

    This great autobiography by 'the mother of civil rights' is written with young people in mind, but is enlightening reading for all ages and races. This simply told story at once holds within it the truth of our history and the hopes of our future. Mrs. Parks was a reluctant revolutionary - often the greatest kind - who had nothing more in mind that fateful day than sitting down on the bus when she felt tired - not so much physically tired as tired of giving in to the racism of her time. Her simple act of courage, to say 'no,' sent waves across this land of ours that are still being heard today. Thank you Mrs. Parks for all you have done. I hope everyone will know your story and continue to do the work you and so many other brave souls began for us.

    The great Rosa Parks

    I think Rosa parks was very brave. She must have really wanted freedom and have a supporting family.She was not very selfsentered. She was probably thinking of other eople as well.
