We read this last night. It was perfect for 4-6, and really made it easy to have a conversation about race, and more largely about difference. Rosa Parks is a personal hero of mine, so I was so happy to be able to share her story with the girls. I think the first person narration helped. Fictional Rosa talked spoke to children on their level. Will definitely buy it or take it out yearly. I Am Rosa Parks

Judge’s Slap Definitely A Hate Crime-I’m still questioning the notion of our so-called post-racial society after hearing about a white businessman who confronted a prominent Chicago judge – a 79-year-old Black woman, called her “Rosa Parks,” spit on her, and then slapped her in the face. This is an unconscionable act. It’s racist and disrespectful, yes, but it also speaks to a deliberate disregard for human decency – and a reckless disregard for Black women. Click to read more

Billboards showing Dr. King and Rosa Parks attending an integrated event at the Highlander Folk School in 1957 are erected across the South. To the white power structure, integration is a "Communist plot" against the "Southern way of life." Therefore, anyone attending an integrated event is — by definition — a "Communist."
