Overview

This four-in-one collection includes the stories of black Christians who were leaders in the struggle for equality: Dr. James W.C. Pennington, an escaped slave who became a pastor, educator, and outspoken abolitionist; Harriet Tubman, a conductor on the Underground Railroad who led more than three hundred slaves to freedom; Mary McLeod Bethune, who became the first black woman in America to establish a four-year college; and Rosa Parks, whose refusal to give her bus seat to a white man helped ignite the modern Civil Rights movement.
