Book Review #8
Don't Know Much About Rosa Parks by Kenneth C. Davis
Rating: three stars(out of four)

A biography of Rosa Parks told from the humorous perspective of Kenneth C. Davis.

A humble and respected woman, Rosa Parks did not set out to change the world that day when she refused to give up her seat. She was merely doing what she thought was right and was tired of being treated badly. Kenneth C. Davis tells her story in a way that shows you how ordinary you can be and still achieve great things. I admire Rosa Parks for what she did and how she helped the civil rights movement, this book gave me more information about her life. A nice book that had all the good elements of history, as well as the horrific that made me shudder in shame.
