        Brain Boost:Learn about Rosa Parks. Throughout her life, Rosa Parks repeatedly challenged racial violence and the prejudiced systems protecting its perpetrators. Her refusal to move to the back of a segregated bus ignited a boycott that lasted 381 days and helped transform civil rights activism into a national movement. But this work came at an enormous risk— and a personal price. Riché D. Richardson details the life of Rosa Parks. Why do you think Rosa Parks is described as "the mother of the Civil Rights Movement?" Write about it or discuss it with your family.
