With even pacing and crystal-clear diction, narrator Rosa Howard embodies the charisma and conviction of one woman who stepped up to do what she could during the Montgomery bus boycott of 1955-56. When Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white man, Georgia Gilmore joined her community in boycotting the city buses. Georgia then used her talents as a cook to make and sell sandwiches, cakes, and pies, donating the proceeds for ride-sharing and other expenses the boycotters faced. Howard's voice, rich and warm, strong but relatable, conveys the big heart of an ordinary woman who answered the call to help her community fight injustice.
