Rosa Parks 1913-2005

Rosa Parks' magnificent example is getting a lot of attention now, and deservedly so. If you're interested in an in-depth, highly readable overview of America during the Civil Rights era, focused through the prism of Dr. King's life, you can do no better than Taylor Branch's books.

I think the third volume, At Canaan's Edge, is still in the works.
