New York: Dial Books, 1992. First edition of Parks' autobiography. Octavo, original half cloth, illustrated. Signed by the author on the half-title page in the year of publication, "Rosa Parks 5/9/92." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Jane Byers Bierhorst. Written with Jim Haskins. Rosa Parks is best known for the day she refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus, sparking the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott. Yet there is much more to her story than this one act of defiance. In this straightforward, compelling autobiography, Rosa Parks talks candidly about the civil rights movement and her active role in it. Her dedication is inspiring; her story is unforgettable. "The simplicity and candor of this courageous woman's voice makes these compelling events even more moving and dramatic" (Publishers Weekly). (Inventory #: 102577)
