Now in paperback - an important moment in history is presented in a cumulative format, accessible to the youngest readers.In 1955, a young woman named Rosa Parks took a big step for civil rights when she refused to give up her seat on a bus for a white passenger. The bus driver told her to move. Jim Crow laws told her to move. But Rosa Parks stayed where she was, and a chain of events was set into motion that would eventually change the course of American history.Fifty years later, The Bus Ride That Changed History retraces that chain of events—introducing the civil rights movement, one idea at a time. Take a ride through history in this unique retelling of what happened when one brave woman refused to stand up so that a white passenger could sit down.
