Freedom Walkers: The Story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott

Written by Russell Freedman

  • 2007 Orbis Pictus Award Honor Book

On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus and give up her seat to a white man. This refusal to give up her dignity sparked the Montgomery bus boycott, which eventually ended segregation on buses. But the boycott did not start or end there, and here Russell Freedman breathes life into all the key personalities and events that contributed to the yearlong struggle, a major victory in the civil rights movement. This compelling and poignant volume, illustrated with arresting black-and-white phototgraphs from the period, is sure to be an essential addition to the civil rights phenomemon.
