In 1955, when Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger, the Montgomery bus boycott began. This book explains the background to the boycott and the long history of African-American slavery and oppression in the United States. It tells how and why the boycott succeeded where other brave efforts had failed, and of the ordinary and extraordinary people whose peaceful determination brought about that success. The book also looks at the Supreme Court of the United States and its decisions in the 1950s that were turning points in the long struggle for African-American civil rights. Book jacket.
