?All I was doing was trying to get home from work, ? said Rosa Parks. Raised in rural Alabama, Parks had never known a time when racial segregation was not the law. In her experience, blacks and whites did not live as equals. Then, one day, Parks decided that she had endured enough. Her soft-spoken defiance on a city bus was the spark?and the civil rights activism, led by the young Martin Luther King Jr., was the fire. In Rosa Parks: Tired Of Giving In, author Anne Schraff takes readers beyond the Montgomery bus boycott and into the heart of the civil rights movement. Rosa Parks faced death threats and personal hardships, but she never stopped fighting for racial equality. Today, her life's work is our civil rights legacy.
