In 1955, a young African-American woman named Rosa Parks took a big step for
civil rights when she refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white passenger.
The bus driver told her to move. Jim Crow laws told her to move. But Rosa Parks
stayed where she was, and a chain of events was set into motion that would
eventually change the course of American history.
Fifty years later, The Bus Ride That Changed History retraces that chain of
events by introducing the civil rights movement one idea at a time. Take a ride
through history with this unique retelling of what happened when one brave woman
refuses to stand up so that a white passenger could sit down.
