Rosa

 

RosaAward-winning writer Nikki Giovanni’s book is the antidote to all the stories about tired, old Rosa Parks who single-handedly desegregated the buses. Here she is placed firmly in the Movement (along with Jo Ann Robinson and E.D. Nixon) and the key historical events of the time. This is a key book for teaching about the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

Rosa is accessible to young readers, but without sacrificing the complexity of the story, and the paint/collage illustrations by Bryan Collier are radiant.
