Overview

The Cross-Currents features inside this biography explore connections between people, places, events, and ideas. They provide additional context for understanding the subject's life and times.

Rosa Parks has been called "the Mother of the Civil Rights Movement." Her courageous act on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1955 helped ignite the struggle to end racial segregation in the United States.

This book tells how she grew up in the South where prejudice, discrimination, and segregation were an often terrifying part of her daily life. Through her mother, grandparents, and early teachers, she learned the importance of dignity and self-respect. As a young woman, she became aware of the civil rights cause through her husband and other people she met. Slowly, Rosa Parks overcame her fears and took her first tentative steps toward positive change-not just for herself and African Americans, but for all Americans.
