A Girl Named Rosa: The True Story of Rosa Parks by Denise Lewis Patrick (Scholastic, January 2018). I like this book because Rosa Parks was independent, and since at that time people said that blacks shouldn’t be as good as whites. They said that they couldn’t go to the same schools. They couldn’t sit in the same bus seats and they couldn’t use the same water fountains even. But I like this book because that it shows that whites and blacks are equal. They could be equal. One time Rosa Parks didn’t let up her seat for a white person, and she had to go to jail, but it was right for her to do that.
