Publisher’s Description: 

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 Parkss politics and years of activism. She shows readers how this civil rights movement radical soughtfor more than a half a centuryto expose and eradicate the American racial-caste system in jobs, schools, public services, and criminal justice.
