The definitive political biography of Rosa Parks examines her six decades of activism, challenging perceptions of her as an accidental actor in the civil rights movement

Presenting a corrective to the popular notion of Rosa Parks as the quiet seamstress who, with a single act, birthed the modern civil rights movement, Theoharis provides a revealing window into Parks's politics and years of activism. She shows readers how this civil rights movement radical sought--for more than a half a century--to expose and eradicate the American racial-caste system in jobs, schools, public services, and criminal justice.

List - Inspiring Women

Rosa Parks has always been someone I've seen as an inspiration, not only just for women but also for the African-American community. She stood up for herself even if it meant she would be arrested or subject to even worse punishment than that. - Hannah
