On December 1, 1955, a seamstress named Rosa Parks refuses to give up her bus seat to a white man in Montgomery, Alabama. Parks is arrested for violating the city’s racial segregation laws. The event triggers the Montgomery bus boycott during the American Civil Rights movement. Decades later in 1999, Parks wrote her autobiography with the assistance of James Haskins. In it, she attempts to show readers more than the events on that day and that there was a bigger passion she carried for the civil rights movement.
