Boycott Blues: How Rosa Parks Inspired a NationRegular price $18.99
Bestselling and multiple Coretta Scott King– and Caldecott–winners Andrea Davis Pinkney and Brian Pinkney present a poignant, blues-infused tribute to the men and women of the Montgomery bus boycott, who refused to give up until they received justice. An essential read-aloud for librarians, teachers, and parents.
On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, and the Montgomery bus boycott began. So did the boycott blues. In the days that followed—382 days to be exact—many people decided they’d rather walk than take city transportation.
Some started taxis, some rode bikes, but they all walked and walked. With dogged feet. With dog-tired feet. With boycott feet. With the boycott blues. The Montgomery bus boycott finally ended when the Supreme Court ruled that segregation on public transportation was unconstitutional.
The award-winning team of Andrea Davis Pinkney and Brian Pinkney has created a rhythmic, informative picture book that focuses on the people who walked and walked and walked and never gave up.
