Description:
The prizewinning educator's brilliant and timely meditation on the misleading ways in which we teach the story of Rosa Parks: a "Detroit News" pick for notable books on Rosa Parks.
Originally published in the fall of 2005 shortly before Rosa Parks died, "She Would Not Be Moved" is a timely and important exploration of how the story of Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott has been distorted when taught in schools. Hailed by the "New York Times Book Review" when it was first published as having "the transcendent power that allows us to see...alternate ways of viewing our history and understanding what is going on in our classrooms," this expanded version of Kohl's original groundbreaking discussion "deftly catalogs problems with the prevailing presentations of Parks and offers a] more historically accurate, politically pointed and age-appropriate alternative" ("Chicago Tribune").
In addition to Marian Wright Edelman's introduction, "She Would Not Be Moved" includes an original essay by Cynthia Brown on civil rights activists Septima Clark, Virginia Durr, and Rosa Parks; a teachers' resource guide to educational materials about Rosa Parks and the civil rights movement; and an appendix explaining how to evaluate textbooks for young people about this critical period in U.S. history.
