PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Black History Month: Rosa Parks Biography Mini Unit

This product is a mini unit on the life of Rosa Parks, one of the leaders of the Civil Rights Movement who refused to give up her seat to a white person on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. The events that followed led the way for equal rights for African Americans in the United States.
