    Douglas G Brinkley(Author)
Fifty years after she made history by refusing to give up her seat on a bus, Rosa Parks at last gets the major biography she deserves. The eminent historian Douglas Brinkley follows this thoughtful and devout woman from her childhood in Jim Crow Alabama through her early involvement in the NAACP to her epochal moment of courage and her afterlife as a beloved (and resented) icon of the civil rights movement. Well researched and written with sympathy and keen insight, the result is a moving, revelatory portrait of an American heroine and her tumultuous times.

("USA Today") A timely update of the historical record, told as an inspiring and unabashedly dramatic story of an American heroine.

Review Text

  • By M.S. Mirza on 25 November 2015

    Gives some valuable context for Rosa Parks involvement in the Civil Rights movements in 1940s and 1950s Alabama, but this is a rather cautious hagiography rather than a probing study of this courageous woman.
