The definitive political biography of Rosa Parks examines her six decades of activism, challenging perceptions of her as an accidental actor in the Civil Rights Movement.
Presenting a corrective to the popular notion of Rosa Parks as the quiet seamstress who, with a single act, birthed the modern Civil Rights Movement, Theoharis provides a revealing window into Parks' politics and years of activism. She shows listeners how this civil rights movement radical sought - for more than a half a century - to expose and eradicate the American racial-caste system in jobs, schools, public services, and criminal justice.

"The celery stalks at midnight!!!"
This book is a CLASSIC. Bunnicula is such a charmingly good time: you enter the Monroe household and join Harold (the family dog) and Chester (the family cat) as they witness the acts of the Monroe family's newest pet, a vampire rabbit that's sucking the juice out of vegetable every night!!!!! *GASP*
What a fantastic time this book is, seeing the world through the eyes of two family pets as they investigate this strange and mysterious new bunny in their house!
