"Each person must live their life as a model for others."
Your children can discover the incredible life of Rosa Parks, 'The Mother of the Freedom Movement', in this inspiring story from the Little People Big Dreams Series.
Rosa Parks grew up during segregation in Alabama, but she was taught to respect herself and stand up for her rights. In 1955, Rosa refused to give up her seat to a white man on a segregated bus, sparking the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
Her decision had a huge impact on civil rights, eventually leading to the end of segregation on public transport.
Not only does this book celebrate the life of an outstanding black person, it also shines a light on the racial injustices that she had to endure throughout her life because of the colour of her skin. This book can be used to start a conversation with your child on the injustices black people still face today. We have to educate a new generation to be antiracist, so that in the future we can live in a fairer, more equal world. Black Lives Matter.
100% of profits from the sales of this book will be donated to two anti-racist charities. Both aim to tackle racism in the UK and create a society in which everyone has a chance to thrive and be treated with the respect that they deserve, regardless of the colour of their skin.
