Summary
In the winter of 1955 in the deep south, Rosa Parks, a single black woman on a public bus, is arrested when she chooses a "whites only" seat. Her action and the reaction of the authorities helps birth the modern civil rights movement in the United States, and makes her an inspiring icon and lodestone to all involved with the struggle for equality, including a young Martin Luther King
