This new biography provides insight into the life and motivations of Rosa Parks, the African-American woman who refused to give up her seat on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama, resulting in her arrest and African-Americans of her city boycotting buses for 13 months. Karen White presents this investigative biography and history of the Civil Rights movement in Alabama in a steady, clear narration that borders on the monotonous. Eventually, the listener becomes swept up by the events unfolding in Montgomery surrounding the life of Rosa Parks, only to be distracted by sloppy pronunciation of polysyllabic words.
