Rosa This picture book seeks to capture the atmosphere of the segregated south of 1955: its double page and fold-out colour paintings use dark hues to suggest heat and tension with light reflecting from the dignified face of Rosa Parks, a seemingly ordinary woman on a routine journey home from work. It shows how her act of quiet defiance in refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white man was to change history, sparking mass boycotts of the transport system and widespread protests against discriminatory laws.
