Rosa Parks made her mark in history when she was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Alabama, bus--an arrest that sparked the civil rights movement in America. Yet her work didn't end there. She continued to fight for fair treatment for African Americans her whole life. "TIME For Kids"(R) Biographies help make a connection between the lives of past heroes and the events of today. By taking a stand for what she believed in, Rosa Parks helped pave the way for advances in civil rights that are now enjoyed by all Americans.Time for Kids Magazine Staff is the author of 'Rosa Parks Civil Rights Pioneer', published 2007 under ISBN 9780060576257 and ISBN 0060576251.
