Rosa Parks: My Story.
Rosa Parks is a novel worth reading by black children. It is a linear book tracing Parks' beginnings in Pine Level, Ala., to that day on Dec. 1, 1955, when she refused to give up her seat on a segregated Montgomery bus to her lectures around the country on brotherhood. She writes: "People always say that I didn't give up my seat because I was tired but that wasn't true .... I was not tired physically .... I was not old. I was 42. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in."
--Tania Padgett Rosa Parks: My Story by Rosa Parks with Jim Haskins, Dial Books, New York, 1992, 192pp, $17
