Rosa Parks (Penguin Lives) - libri usati

1990, ISBN: 0670891606

ID: 2244977

Most Americans know her only as the 42-year-old seamstress who refused to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Alabama, bus. Her quiet act of defiance is often considered the beginning of the modern civil rights movement, but historian Douglas Brinkley reminds us that it was neither the beginning nor the end of Rosa Parks's quest for justice. On that fateful day in 1955 she was already a veteran civil rights activist, married to a charter member of the NAACP's Montgomery chapter, and a devout member of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, one of the many black churches whose congregants organized and fought to desegregate the South. Brinkley gives a thorough account of Parks's political life in the South and in Detroit (where she moved in 1957 to escape death threats), capturing her majestic personal dignity. Yet he also places her activism within a vivid historical context, anchored by extensive interviews with her peers and Parks herself as well as scholarly research. His subject is now a frail octogenarian, but Brinkley conveys the power of her legacy in a moving final scene when Nelson Mandela, just four months out of a South African jail in 1990, embraces Parks as a comrade and a beloved mentor. --Wendy Smith 20th century,african-american and black,african-american studies,americas,biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,civil rights and liberties,ethnic and national African-American & Black, Viking Adult

Rosa Parks - libri usati

ID: 2413867

Rosa Parks has been called the mother of the civil rights movement. Parks was a seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama, when, in 1955, she refused to give up her seat on a city bus to a white passenger. She was arrested and convicted of violating a local ordinance, but her act of defiance sparked a citywide boycott of the bus system by blacks that lasted more than a year. This single act of defiance was the catalyst for Martin Luther King, Jr., then an unknown clergyman, to rise into the national spotlight. Ultimately, the U.S. Supreme Court outlawed segregation on city buses. In "Rosa Parks", Douglas Brinkley's talent as an award-winning historian shines as he brilliantly examines an American heroine in the context of this tumultuous time in US history.
