Rosa (SOLD)

NEW Paperback Picture Book : Rosa by Nikki Giovanni & Bryan Collier 
Caldecott Honor Medal
Coretta Scott King Medal
Child magazine's Best Children's Book Awards 2005

Luminous watercolor and collage pictures by an award-winning artist and and seamless storytelling by an equally acclaimed poet and activist shed light on the civil rights era. This book focuses on the engrossing personal account of Rosa Parks, the seamstress who, in 1955, refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on a crowded city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Meshing Parks's individual experience with the historic events that followed (the boycott and subsequent Supreme Court ruling against bus segregation), Giovanni and Collier affirm the effect one person's quiet act of courage can have on the world: "She had not sought this moment, but she was ready for it."
