Beyond the Back of the Bus by Sandra Turner-Barnes

Book Description

This book is suitable for readers aged 5 to 7 years. One of the most important moments in African American history comes alive in this account of Rosa Parks' legendary stand against racial segregation in 1955. Presented with eye-catching illustrations and written in an enjoyable, metered rhyme, the story tells how Parks' refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus led to the successful mass boycott of the transit system, when roughly 40,000 commuters avoided riding the bus for 382 days. Parks ultimately influenced the burgeoning Civil Rights Movement and directly opened the doors for Martin Luther King Jr. and other such luminary activists.
