Rosa Parks, an African American seamstress in 1955 Alabama, had no idea she .

Rosa Parks, an African American seamstress in 1955 Alabama, had no idea she was changing history when she refused to surrender her seat to a white passenger on a segregated bus. Who was she, before and after her historic act, and how did it sound the death knell for Jim Crow? Acclaimed historian Douglas Brinkley brings mid-century America alive in this brilliant examination of a celebrated heroine in the context of her life and tumultuous times, revealing the quiet dignity, hope, courage and humor that have made this everywoman a living legend.

Douglas Brinkley has written his best book yet. This is a fascinating story that will be read for years to come.

It also illuminates, behind the scenes, a Walter Cronkite that millions of Americans thought they knew, but, as Brinkley’s book now shows us, didn’t. Douglas Brinkley has written his best book yet.

In 1955, Rosa Parks, an African American seamstress, had no idea she was changing history when, fed up and tired, she refused to surrender her seat to a white passenger on a bus in segregated Alabama. Today, she is immortalized for the defiance that sent her to jail and triggered a bus boycott that catapulted Martin Luther King Jr. into the national spotlight. Who was she, before and after her historic act, and how did that act sound the death knell for Jim Crow?

Most Americans know her only as the 42-year-old seamstress who refused to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Alabama, bus.

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.
