De petite à grande, Rosa Parks
By Lisbeth Kaiser, illustrated by Marta Antelo
La courte échelle
As a child, Rosa Parks was already sensitive to the injustices suffered by black people in the American South. While white people took the bus to their big school, she had to walk miles to get to her tiny one. This quiet but determined woman became famous for refusing to give up her seat on the bus to a white man, as the law at the time required. Her gesture served as a trigger for a large-scale movement: the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Rosa Parks is an important figure in the fight against racial segregation in public places.
Carried by colorful and lively illustrations, De petite à grande, Rosa Parks addresses important and necessary themes such as equal rights and self-respect.
