Summary
"The Montgomery bus boycott was a pivotal event that launched the civil rights movement and helped transform American society. This epic tale of courage and peaceful resistance began with a simple "No" spoken by an African American seamstress. When Rosa Parks, exhausted after a long day at work, refused to give up her bus seat for a white man, she defied the strict segregation laws that made blacks second-class citizens. What followed was a test of courage and resolve that ultimately reshaped the nation. Using powerful illustrations and accessible text, this exciting graphic novel tells the story of actions, arrests, and the dramatic events that followed." -- Publisher description
