Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice

9.99

Before there was Rosa Parks there was Claudette Colvin. On March 2, 1955, when Claudette was only 15, she was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white woman on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama.  Unlike Rosa Parks, she was shunned by her classmates and the leaders of her community. Her actions however helped lay the groundwork for the Montgomery Bus Boycott. 
Based on extensive interviews with Claudette and many others, this is the first in-depth account to be written about this important but little known figure. It is chock full of photos and quotes of inspiring figures in bold and varied type. I found this very engaging and I couldn’t put it down! It really helps one understand what it was like to live during such a pivotal time. A winner of multiple awards including the National Book Award and Newbery Honor! Ages 12+
